Reading group on Van Parijs: Linguistic Justice
Next Monday (5 December), we will launch an on-line reading group here at Spongia on Philippe Van Parijs‘s latest book Linguistic Justice. This is in preparation of the first Erasmus Philosophy Lecture that Van Parijs will give on Thursday January 26, and the seminar for scholars and graduate students the next day. But anyone interested in reading the book is welcome to join us here over the next two months in discussing the book chapter by chapter.
The schedule for our online reading group is as follows:
December 5, Chapter 1: Lingua Franca
December 12, Chapter 2: Linguistic justice as fair cooperation
December 19, Chapter 3: Linguistic justice as equal opportunity
January 2, Chapter 4: Linguistic justice as parity of esteem
January 9, Chapter 5: Linguistic territoriality
January 16, Chapter 6: Linguistic diversity
Constanze Binder, Sem de Maagt and myself will take turns in introducing a chapter, after which anyone who has read the chapter can join the discussion.
