Program April–July

Welcome to History and Philosophy of the Language Sciences! This is a new blog devoted to exploring and promoting the incredible diversity that exists in the study of language, both in the past and today. We publish a new post every Wednesday, with an invitation to all readers to join in the discussion through comments. Our program for the first fourteen weeks can be seen below. To find out more about us, see our ‘About’ text (in English, French and German).

We are now preparing our second program, for the period July–September. If you would like to write a post for us in this period, please get in touch. Our contact details and guidelines are included in the ‘About’ text.
