Locus Criticus

Prezados/as compañeiros/as:

Querémosvos comunicar que dende o Departamento de Filoloxía Galega e Latina da Universidade de Vigo acabamos de poñer a andar o LOCUS CRITICUS (https://webs.uvigo.es/locuscriticus/), un foro ou plataforma dixital de debate sobre cuestións de crítica textual centradas na lírica medieval. Coidamos que esta é unha iniciativa útil que pode facilitar a comunicación entre os membros do noso eido científico (sobre todo na edición de textos trobadorescos), así como actualizar e axilizar a reflexión e o debate sobre aspectos problemáticos derivados da lectura e interpretación das fontes manuscritas.
Estades todos/as convidados/as a coñecer e participar en LOCUS CRITICUS. Agradecémosvos de antemán todas as críticas, comentarios e suxestións que nos fagades chegar e que, certamente, contribuirán á súa mellora.
Recibide un saúdo moi cordial.

Meeting Description:

Le groupe ??? et le réseau Gramm-R organisent un colloque international consacré au thème de la variation en langue. L’ambition de ce colloque est d’inciter au débat interdisciplinaire par le biais de communications qui aborderont des problématiques aussi diverses que :

-Le rapport oral / écrit
-Le rapport standard / dialectes
-Le rapport micro-système / macro-système
-Les continuités et discontinuités dans l’évolution des langues romanes
-La transition du latin aux langues romanes
-Les paramètres de la variabilité

Le colloque accueillera en son sein un atelier consacré à l’évolution diachronique des systèmes de cohésion du français, en ciblant la catégorie de la conjonction : Diachronie des conjonctions. Cet atelier, organisé par Annie Bertin et Hava Bat-Zeev Shyldkrot, prendra principalement pour champ d’observation les périodes du moyen français (14e-15e siècles) et du français pré-classique (16e- début 17e siècles).

En réunissant des spécialistes ?uvrant dans différentes branches de la linguistique – que ce soit la linguistique historique, la dialectologie, la sociolinguistique, la stylistique, la pragmatique – afin qu’ils échangent leur expertise, nous espérons voir émerger de nouvelles perspectives, qui pourront féconder les recherches sur la dynamique et le changement en langues.
