    2019. April 12th and 13th. Linguistic Diversity: celebrating difference Conference

    Each language has a value in itself that transcends a mere collection of interchangeable words from one code to another. Each language has a particular way of analysing and reflecting reality, of moulding it in thought. This is the basic precept of what is known as linguistic relativity and according to this, the fewer languages spoken, the poorer our view of the world as a species will be. Leaving behind early stages of this approach such as the Sapir-Whorf hypothesis, the principle of Boas-Jakobson suggests that different languages influence their speaker’s minds, however not due to what each language allows to think but rather due to the patterns of information each language habitually obliges people to think about. Furthermore, according to Guy Deutscher (2010), speech habits, which are imprinted from an early age, can create habits of mind that have far-reaching consequences beyond speaking, as they affect orientation skills and even patterns of memory.

    Poetry and Poetics in Contemporary Galicia: A Half-Day Symposium

     

    Irish Centre for Galician Studies, University College Cork

    O'Rahilly Building G27a (Mary Ryan Meeting Room)

    Tuesday 9th October 2018

     

    This symposium seeks to explore some of the multiple facets that define contemporary Galician poetry and will provide an overview of its most innovative critical and poetic discourses: from an analysis of domesticity and the value of home in the poetry of Lupe Gómez, one of the most radical voices in Galician poetry today, to the transgressive rewritings of the medieval Galician-Portuguese songbooks carried out in Erín Moure's poetry; from the impact of a new generation of young poets that has emerged in recent years, effectively conquering important spaces within the field, to the dynamic notion of poetry translation as creative practice. Speakers at the symposium include academics, poets and translators.
