Colloque : The Cours de Linguistique Générale revisited
Annonce du colloque : The Cours de Linguistique Générale revisited
The Cours de Linguistique Générale was published in June 1916, three years after the death of Ferdinand Saussure. The text, which is based on the class notes of Saussure’s students, marks the beginning of general linguistics. Ever since its publication, this work has become a reference book for language sciences and humanities in Europe and all over the world. Since the first translation of this work (into Japanese, in 1928) the book has been translated into some 30 different languages: it has deeply marked all linguistics schools in the first half of the 20th century before becoming the inspiration of European structuralism.
The Polis Institute will hold an international conference on March 31 – April 1, 2016, in Jerusalem, to mark the centennial of the publication of this seminal work. The conference will have an interdisciplinary character, gathering specialists who will explore the background and influence of the CLG, the concepts and dichotomies developed in this book, and the specific relations between sign and meaning.
