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.

Title: Examining Education, Media, and Dialogue under Occupation
Subtitle: The Case of Palestine and Israel
Edited By: Ilham Nasser
Lawrence N. Berlin
Shelley Wong
URL: http://www.multilingual-matters.com/display.asp?isb=9781847694263
Series Title: Critical Language and Literacy Studies
Description:

This book is an in-depth examination of education and media under occupation.
The contributors to this volume engage dialogue to explore these domains and
their roles and functioning under occupation while keeping an eye toward
resolution, using the on-going conflict between Palestine and Israel as the
focus. The uniqueness of this collection is not limited to the willingness of its
authors to investigate topics that have often been left out of the mainstream,
but that they actually enter into dialogue with one another. Education and media
are exemplified as domains that can either maintain the status quo of
oppression when used by policymakers and governments to do so or can be
utilized as mechanisms for change and peacemaking. These contradictory roles
are highlighted throughout this book by multiple voices.
