Interdisciplinary Seminar (online) – Linguistic Geographies. History, Epistemology and Methods

Organisation : Felix DE MONTETY (CNRS, Laboratoire Pacte, Grenoble, France)
Information :

This seminar aims at surveying the crossing trajectories of various scientific approaches to space and language, not only in geography and linguistics but also in history, anthropology and beyond. Its participants will propose to study how the tools of cartographical representation have been used and transformed over the past centuries to represent the spread and movement of language across specific territories, to look at the importance of naming processes in the making of place and identity, and explore some of the ways linguistic surveying can be translated from lived spaces to atlases.

Calendar – All sessions take place at 2 p.m (GMT+1)
