A conference called «Jan Baudouin de Courtenay and World Linguistics» is held at KFU on October 12th – 15th.
Renowned philologist Jan Baudouin de Courtenay was born in 1845 and worked at Kazan University in 1875 – 1883, so the conference covers two anniversaries simultaneously. Guests from Austria, Germany, Poland, Turkey, Czech Republic, and the CIS countries are attending.
Radif Zamaletdinov, Director of the Institute of Philology and Intercultural Communication, noted that the University's longstanding tradition in philological research is actively supported today. One and a half centuries of uninterrupted development can really be called an achievement.
The plenary session touched upon Kazan Linguistics School and its influence on the world science, especially neurolinguistics, psycholinguistics, sociolinguistics, Ancient Slavic studies.
The panels were dedicated to a number of areas of contemporary philology, among them neurolinguistics, psycholinguistics, cognitive linguistics, phonetics, phonology, word formation, morphology, grammar, textology, and semantics.
The event was co-organized by the Institute for Linguistic Studies of the RAS, the Institute of the Russian Language of the RAS, the Institute of Language Studies of the RAS, and the Giessen Center for Eastern European Studies.
