Jost Gippert: Our Featured Linguist!

"Buenos dias", "buenas noches" -- this was the first words in a foreign language I heard in my life, as a three-year old boy growing up in developing post-war Western Germany, where the first gastarbeiters had arrived from Spain. Fascinated by the strange sounds, I tried to get to know some more languages, the only opportunity being TV courses of English and French -- there was no foreign language education for pre-teen school children in Germany yet in those days.

Title: Learning and Teaching Narrative Inquiry
Subtitle: Travelling in the Borderlands
Edited By: Sheila Trahar
URL: http://benjamins.com/catalog/sin.14
Series Title: Studies in Narrative 14
Description:

In the final chapter of this volume, the authors refer to the “pedagogical vantage
points offered by narrative inquiry”, an apt comment that encapsulates the
volume’s purpose and its spirit. As an increasing number of people throughout
the world – and from a broad range of disciplines – are turning to narrative as a
research methodology, this volume is timely in its focus on the learning and
teaching of this approach. The contributors to the volume, all narrative scholars
themselves, write about the creative and challenging pedagogical activities that
they use in order to enable others to learn about and do narrative research. The
volume will be of particular interest to those teaching narrative research
methodologies at both undergraduate and postgraduate level in the social
sciences, medical sciences and the humanities. The contributions from Hong
Kong, Israel, Europe and North America, all reflect critically on the rich
complexities of using and teaching narrative in those contexts and attend
closely to the diverse constituencies of their learning communities.
