Gaston Dorren: Linguistic cultures around the world / odczyt
Instytut Językoznawstwa UMK zaprasza na odczyt Gastona Dorrena "Linguistic cultures around the world”, który odbędzie się w Toruniu
18 lutego 2020 r. o godz. 12:00 na Wydziale Humanistycznym w Collegium Maius (ul. Fosa Staromiejska 3) w sali 307.
Based on my books Babel and Lingo, I will show how languages are more diverse than even many linguists realise - let alone laypeople. This is true both for internal features, such as grammar and phonology, and for the 'linguistic culture' that pervades each language.
Gaston Dorren jest autorem książek Lingo: A Language Spotter's Guide to Europe (2014) i Babel. W dwadzieścia języków dookoła świata (oryg. Babel: Around the World in Twenty Languages, 2018).

Rebuilding research and scholarship to be open by default presents a unique opportunity to construct a foundation that is fundamentally more equitable. Yet today, structural racism, discrimination, and exclusion are present and persistent in places where openness is a core value. As a global community, it is important to understand that the systems and spaces of the present are often built upon legacies of historic injustice and that addressing these inequities is a necessity.
