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.

Meeting Description: Racism and Anti-Racism through Education and Community Practice: An International Exchange
26-28 June 2013
Centre for Education for Racial Equality in Scotland, University of Edinburgh, UK

This international conference aims to put ‘race’ back on the agenda in education and community theory and practice. Over recent years, practitioners and academics interested in the operations of ‘race’, racism and anti-racism have had to negotiate various disabling discourses in policy, politics and practice. From the backlash against 'failed' multiculturalism in Europe, to the marginalisation of ‘race’ in inclusive education to a shift in preference for discussing culture and ethnicity rather than racism, it seems that ‘race’ and ‘challenging racism’ has been silenced from broader discussions about educational inclusion and social justice.

This conference aims to bring together academics, policy makers and practitioners from around the globe to critically debate and share practice experiences about ‘race’, racism and anti-racism in different national contexts.
