*Language and Space explorations: One question - different perspectives - various directions

By inviting colleagues across disciplines to discuss language and space related topics from yet underexplored perspectives, the URPP Language and Space ventures to probe new directions and territories as potential starting points for future collaborations.

"Language and Space Explorations" differs from the conventional colloquium format by providing the stage for focused panel discussions, hands-on workshops, thematic meet-ups etc. - the only restriction being originality and transdisciplinarity.
