Universities and University Academics
We are a network of university academics teaching and/or researching in the fields of language planning, interlinguistics, transnational language policy, linguistic justice, and planned languages, including Esperanto.
Click here to access our film gallery presenting university academics from across the world who are either speakers of Esperanto and/or are using Esperanto in their research; the gallery also includes Esperanto speakers who are researching topics which relate in some way to ESF’s priority fields of interest, and Esperanto speakers who work in other fields.
The films are in a variety of languages, usually the first language or the local language of the presenter.
If you would like to contact one of the university academics in the lists presented or linked here to ask for advice or support with your (prospective) dissertation or thesis, or if you would like to access their work for research, please contact us and we will be happy to put you in touch. Alternatively, many of the linked sites offer contact details.
We are also preparing reader-friendly one-page summaries of academics’ published work; these will appear here, with links, as they become finalised.

Students researching Esperanto
The following section lists students who teach an Esperanto course in their respective universities, run an Esperanto club, or are the only Esperanto speaker, as yet, in their university – they would love to meet fellow students who are interested in learning or in finding out more about the language.
A more detailed document was compiled in Esperanto for the World Esperanto Youth Organisation by Lucas Teyssier, with the help of Karina Oliveira, Tyron Surmon and Yuro Jung (August 2020). Contact us If you’d like to know more.
