Exploring Language, Knowledge & Ideas
All knowledge—whether humanistic, social scientific or scientific—is mediated through language systems, concepts and ideas, and various modes and forms of narrative shaping.
Language is not static, it is a living, changing reflection of and shaper of human culture, experience and society. The critical and historical study of ideas, languages and narratives is therefore fundamental to a full understanding of how societies produce and respond to knowledge.
By analysing how languages and their use change over time, teams of Maynooth University researchers are generating new insight into culture, society, history and the growth of knowledge and ideas.
