Hiphilangsci update summer 2021

Dear colleagues,

With the northern summer now in full swing, let us aid in your aestivation with some recent delights from hiphilangsci.net. In the past year we have not only continued our tradition of scholarly blog posts, but also – like many in this age of lockdowns and quarantine – finally embraced the retrofuturistic dream of videophones and teleconferences. Join us on our audio-visual adventures in videos and podcasts.

Best regards,
Chloé Laplantine & James McElvenny
