Linguistic Field(s): History of Linguistics; Linguistic Theories; Philosophy of Language; Typology

Meeting Description:

Pratique de connaissance elle-même, l’histoire des idées linguistiques
s’applique aux modes de production des connaissances concernant le langage et
les langues. Elle suppose donc une historicité des sciences du langage. Nous
entendons par là que l'histoire n'est pas un simple « milieu » dans lequel ces
connaissances seraient produites, mais une temporalité spécifique engendrée par
des pratiques, assujettie à des finalités, déterminée par des causes socio-
historiques et des représentations théoriques dont l'historien a à charge de
construire des représentations adéquates et les articulations.
Loin de faire, donc, de cette historicité une essence ou une abstraction, loin
de confondre l’histoire avec le passé, cette École 2009 souhaite circonscrire
pour elle-même ce mixte de contingence et de rationalité qui constitue
l’histoire des sciences (et des sciences du langage parmi elles) et y
sensibiliser son public.

This Year the LINGUIST List hopes to raise $60,000. This money will go to help

The LINGUIST List is under the umbrella of Eastern Michigan University and as such 
can receive donations through the EMU Foundation, which is a registered 501(c) Non 
Profit organization. Our Federal Tax number is 38-6005986. These donations can be 
offset against your federal and sometimes your state tax return (U.S. tax payers 
only). For more information visit the IRS Web-Site, or contact your financial advisor.

Many companies also offer a gift matching program, such that they will match any 
gift you make to a non-profit organization. Normally this entails your contacting 
your human resources department and sending us a form that the EMU Foundation fills 
in and returns to your employer. This is generally a simple administrative procedure 
that doubles the value of your gift to LINGUIST, without costing you an extra penny. 
Please take a moment to check if your company operates such a program.

Thank you very much for your support of LINGUIST!
