This book consists of a collection of papers that focus on Esperanto as either a tool or a domain of academic activity. Esperanto is a well-established and significant linguistic and cultural phenomenon involving well over a million inhabitants of the globe. By argument and example, this collection implicitly raises the question whether the humanities and social sciences can continue to ignore this phenomenon without disavowing their role as human sciences.
