International Conference “Le Lingue Islamiche”


The international conference “Le lingue islamiche” will take place July 2-3, 2019 at Roma Tre University. The event is co-organized by the Department of Foreign Languages, Literatures and Cultures - Roma Tre University, the Department of Asian, African and Mediterranean Studies - University of Naples "L'Orientale” and the Seminar für Semitistik und Arabistik - Freie Universität Berlin. The conference topics are inspired by Bausani’s ideas on Islamic languages as presented in his work “Le lingue islamiche: interazioni e acculturazioni” (in Bausani A., Scarcia Amoretti B., (eds.), Il mondo islamico tra interazione e acculturazione, Roma, Istituto di Studi Islamici, 1981, pp. 3-19). In this paper, Bausani presents the category of “Islamic languages”, defined as the functional system(s) that arose in a number of Islamicate societies through simultaneous -often specialized- use of genetically distinct languages by the same speakers and authors.

The conference will feature a keynote by Kees Versteegh, Emeritus Professor of Arabic and Islam at the University of Nijmegen (The Netherlands).
