The 7th European Australianist workshop will be held at SOAS in London
on 3rd and 4th April 2012.

The purpose of the workshop is to provide a venue for the presentation
and discussion on current research on Australian languages. As in
previous workshops a theme is suggested: “Contact phenomena in
Australian languages”.  However, participants are free to present
papers not related to this theme, and we welcome contributions
relating to any aspect of Australian languages,  from any perspective.

Confirmed speakers include

Eva Schultze-Berndt, University of Manchester
William McGregor, University of Arhus
Peter Austin, SOAS

Abstracts are invited for the workshop. Presentations will be 20
minutes followed by 10 minutes of discussion. Abstracts should be no
more than one page in length including references and examples. They
should be set in a minimum of 12pt font. They should be in .doc or
.pdf format and the filename should start with 7_EAW, followed by an
underscore and then first authors’ surname, eg. 7_EAW_bloggs.doc.

Abstracts should be submitted to Candide Simard, cs75 at soas.ac.uk

The deadline for the submission of all abstracts is Friday 20 January
2012, with notification by 4 February 2012.
