On December 5th and 6th – after months of planning and preparing – the international workshop “Resurrecting the Ancient Mind. Cognitive Science in Archaeology and Philology” organized by doctoral candidates of our Research Training Group took place at the Institut Français in Mainz (see here the entire programme).

  • Panel 3: Cognitive Linguistics and Philology (speakers: Dr. Ines Köhler [Berlin], Prof. Anthony Corbeill [Oxford], John R. Taylor [Otago]), organized by Shahrzad Irannejad, Mirna Kjorveziroska, Marie-Charlotte von Lehsten and Oxana Polozhentseva, with the kind help of PD Dr. Annemarie Ambühl and Prof. Tanja Pommerening
