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.

Theme: Society, Environment and Trust: Towards Sustainable Systems of Governance

The Asian Conference on the Social Sciences, now in its fourth year, has hosted a combined total of more than 1,000 academics and thought leaders from around the globe in a celebration of interdisciplinary study in the social sciences. In 2013 we hope to build on the conversations and partnerships we have nurtured over the past three years, and to forge new relationships as we again encourage academics and scholars to meet and exchange ideas and views in an international academic forum.

This year’s conference will again include a variety of presenters representing a wide range of social science disciplines, expressing divergent views, searching for common ground, and creating the synergies that can inspire multi-disciplinary collaborations. In developing these relationships among ourselves, the role of the social sciences is strengthened as we take our place at the table, along with scholars in the STEM disciplines (i.e., science, technology, engineering, and mathematics), in seeking solutions to the complex issues and problems of the 21st century. I sincerely hope that we will use this time together, not just for intellectual discovery and discourse, but to establish a common vision and to motivate each other to do our part in the creation of a better world.
