A scuola gli uni degli altri. Nascita e primi passi del CISPELS
CISPELS is here introduced as a young, italian enterprise devoted
to the history of linguistic and semiotic thought, and to its initial steps. in the
background, the preceding initiatives are mentioned: iCHolS; SHESl, the
Henry Sweet Society for the History of Linguistic Ideas, the Studienkreis für die
Geschichte der Sprachwissenschaft. the importance of the relationship among
scientific societies, multidisciplinary research, a united commitment between
historiographical reconstruction and explanation, on the one hand, and highly
specialised, active inquiries on the other, is highlighted, together with a
number of initiatives already in progress: a yearly summer school (2016-), a
national conference (2018) and the hosting of an international one (2020).
the foundation of the present hosting journal, Blityri, has been a pathfinder
in this newly established tradition.
