The Multilingualism Research Group

Since 2008, the Multilingualism Research Group has organized a series of annual meetings on the topics of "Multilingualism, Linguae francae and History of Knowledge" in different linguistic and chronological contexts, hosted by various scholarly institutions of Europe and Asia.

 

The Multilingualism Research Group is an institutional cooperation between the Austrian Academy of Sciences (ÖAW), the Italian Institute for the Middle and Far East (ISMEO) and the Norwegian Institute of Philology (PHI).

 

The circle of partner institutions engaged in the scholarly debates within the Multilingualism Research Group has been enlarging itself constantly ever since the first meetings in 2008 and 2009: The forum unites partners from the Norwegian Institute of Philology (Jens E. BRAARVIG and Amund BJORSNES), the TOPOI Cluster at the Freie Universität and the Max-Planck-Gesellschaft in Berlin (Florentina BADALANOVA, Mark GELLER), the University of Bologna (Antonio PANAINO), of the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität of Munich (Olav HACKSTEIN, Peter-Arnold MUMM), the DARIOSH Project at L 'Orientale University of Naples (Adriano ROSSI) and the University of Viterbo (Ela FILIPPONE), of "La Sapienza" University of Rome (Mauro MAGGI), the University of Vienna (Gebhard SELZ and his team, in co-ordination with the European project group Classifiers), and the Austrian Academy of Sciences (Bert FRAGNER, Florian SCHWARZ, Velizar SADOVSKI).

More information about the Multilingualism Research Group can be found in the introductions to the published books (see further below on the present page).
