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.

Conference Theme 2013: Connectedness, Identity and Alienation

A combined total of more than 900 academics from over fifty different nations have attended the Asian Conference on Arts and Humanities since it was launched in 2010. As the conference enters its fourth year it aims to build on the strengths and successes of the previous two years by offering a true celebration of interdisciplinary study in a stimulating scholarly environment, and in the wonderfully rich physical and cultural environment of Japan. This international conference will again bring together university scholars working throughout Japan, Asia, and beyond to share ideas and forge working relationships with each other over a stimulating, challenging, and fun long weekend.

The 2013 conference theme is ‘Connectedness, Identity and Alienation’ and the organizers hope that this will again encourage and inspire exciting new research avenues, and further encourage academic and personal encounters and exchanges across national, religious, cultural and disciplinary divides.
