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: VERBAL-Workshop ‘Mobility & Language / Mobilität & Sprache’
22-24 November 2013
University of Salzburg, Austria

Mobility means many things, moving and being moved, being ready and being able to move, desiring to move and being forced to move, moving in physical, social and cognitive spaces, moving from one place to another or moving as an activity in its own right. Mobility covers such diverse social, cultural and political phenomena as migration, tourism, transport, sports, professional flexibility and disability. Mobility thus seems to conceptually organize (or disorganize) our thinking about the modern world.

The workshop ‘Mobility & Language / Mobilität & Sprache’, continuing the VERBAL* series ‘X&Language / X&Sprache’, will take place at the University of Salzburg, 22-24 November 2013, as part of the programme of the ÖLT, the annual conference of linguistics in Austria. It will be organized by Marietta Calderón and Georg Marko.

*VERBAL is the Verband für Angewandte Linguistik ‘Association of Applied Linguistics’ in Austria.
