Three Visiting Philosophers at the Annual CEES Conference
Three visiting philosophers will give a talk at the conference "Variation in language, literature, folklore, and music" taking place on December 7th-8th.
Variation is a universal phenomenon permeating language, culture, and the entire worldview, and as such connects the different domains explored by the Centre of Excellence in Estonian Studies. We invite you to discuss the issues related to specific and common in variation in language, literature, folklore, and music, and the confluences and connections between different variations. The conference also features round-table discussions on the methods for studying variation and problems concerned with data (large and small databases, so-called bad data). We are open for suggestions for workshops, especially those dealing with interdisciplinary topics.
