Meeting Description:

The 1st International Postgraduate Conference on New Research in Occitan

Centre Universitaire Jean-François Champollion, Albi
11- 12 June 2009

In the context of the increasingly diverse and interdisciplinary nature of
research on Occitan language and culture, researchers dealing with any aspects
of Occitan linguistics are invited to attend this two-day conference in order to
share ideas and exchange methods with fellow young researchers in Occitan studies.

The conference aims to provide an interactive forum where constructive
discussions between postgraduates and established scholars can encourage
collaborative projects and identify new areas of research. Contributions on all
aspects of Occitan language and culture will be presented, on topics such as
linguistics, history, literature, sociology, musicology, and ethnography.

The plenary talks will be given by:

Philippe Martel (Researcher C.N.R.S., University Paul Valéry, Montpellier)
Jean-Pierre Chambon (Professor, University Paris Sorbonne, Paris IV)
