19th International Meeting of Young Linguists
The conference boasts 18 years' tradition which started in 2000 at the Institute of the Czech Language of the Academy of Sciences, Prague, and has been continued since 2001 at Palacký University in Olomouc. The topics to be discussed this year are following:
While the more or less distant historical periods are called the "Age of Steam", "Enlightenment" or "Information Age", the present-day era might be nicknamed "the Age of Motion": Europe and Middle East witness new migration of peoples; Eurocitizens move througout the Eurospace seeking new jobs and education; billions of words fly daily from one continent to another on the social networks; and the concept of gender is no more perceived in a dichotomic way only.
