NOUVELLE RECHERCHE EN DOMAINE OCCITAN : Approches interdisciplinaires.

NEW RESEARCH IN OCCITAN STUDIES : Interdisciplinary approaches

During the 9th congress of the Association Internationale d’Etudes Occitanes (Aachen, August 2008), the idea of a conference for graduate researchers working on Occitan was put forward. This conference, organised by the postgraduate students present in Aachen, will be held at the Centre Universitaire Jean-François Champollion in Albi, on the 11th and 12th of June 2009.


In the context of the increasingly diverse and interdisciplinary nature of research on Occitan language and culture, postgraduate students from all disciplines are invited to present their research projects and exchange different methods with fellow young researchers in Occitan studies.

The conference aims to provide an interactive forum where constructive discussions between students can encourage collaborative projects and identify new areas of research.

Contributions on all aspects of Occitan language and culture are welcomed, on topics including, but not limited to: linguistics, history, literature, sociology, musicology, and ethnography. Each paper should present a single, well-defined aspect of the author’s research, and may touch on the role of interdisciplinary work in this research.


Abstracts, of 300 words maximum, should be submitted by e-mail to the conference address by 10 January 2009. Notification of acceptance/rejection will be given in mid-February.


Papers may be in Occitan, French, another Romance language or English. Each presentation should last approximately twenty minutes and will be followed by ten minutes for questions.


It is envisaged that the conference proceedings will be published, to which end finished articles should be submitted by 30 June 2009.


The conference is organised under the auspices of the Association Internationale d’Etudes Occitanes.
