Featured Linguist!

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: The 3rd Linguistic Conference for Doctoral Students (‘Sprachwissenschaftliche Tagung für Promotionsstudierende’, STaPs) will be held on April 5-6, 2013 at Heidelberg University. The overarching topic of the conference will be Interdisciplinary Perspectives on Language, Discourse, and Culture (Interdisziplinäre Perspektiven auf Sprache, Diskurs und Kultur).

The conference provides doctoral students the opportunity to present specific aspects or current challenges within their projects in problem-oriented talks that leave a substantial amount of room for discussion. This allows students to discuss difficulties and develop strategies to solve these problems in an informal and interdisciplinary environment. In addition, the program will include interactive and interdisciplinary workshops on methodological and general questions regarding doctoral projects in the areas of language, discourse, and culture.

The 3rd StaPs offers doctoral students the possibility to share their experiences with other young researchers from a wide range of disciplines and receive feedback on their work from peers. In contrast to other academic conferences, participants do not need to present finished products. Instead, students can share and discuss work in progress and challenges in their doctoral project in a pressure-free environment.
