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: 7th Latin Meeting in Analytic Philosophy
July 1-2, 2013
Institut Jean Nicod, Paris

The Latin Meeting in Analytic Philosophy is a biennial meeting that takes place under the auspices of the European Society for Analytic Philosophy (ESAP) the Italian Society for Analytic Philosophy (SIFA), the Spanish Society for Analytic Philosophy (SEFA), the Portuguese Society for Analytic Philosophy (SPFA) and the Francophone Society for Analytic Philosophy (SoPhA).

The ‘Latin’ connection is important. There are a number of affinities - intellectual, affective and geographic - among Southern European countries. The main argument in favour of this link is the fact that France, Spain, Portugal and Italy are faced with similar institutional problems, which do not affect, say, Anglo-Saxon countries. We believe academic links among Southern European countries should be reinforced, so that academic communities in those countries could raise their standing in the overall international scene. Philosophy is no exception to this and the joint organization of international conferences in the area is one obvious way of implementing the idea. Institut Jean Nicod has been playing a relevant role as far as the above-mentioned joint effort is concerned, and more so in recent years.

The purpose of the Latin Meetings (organized since 2001 in one of the Latin European countries) is to provide an opportunity for researchers (mainly) from those countries to present their work. Such research will be representative of the research in analytic philosophy carried out in the so-called Latin countries. All material presented is non-published, one main goal of the meetings being to enable researchers to present to minimally demanding audiences work-in-progress versions of articles to be submitted to international blind-refereed journals. Although this is not a necessary condition, preference is given to young researchers concluding their doctoral dissertations, and philosophers who have completed their PhD within the last 5 years. And although participation is not limited to researchers from the countries mentioned, preference will be given to researchers active in universities from those countries and to researchers that are citizens of those countries working abroad.
