> Dear linguists interested in Finnic ("Baltic Finnic") languages!

> The Finnic research project (originally) located at the Dept. of Finno-Ugrian Studies of the University of Helsinki (http://www.helsinki.fi/hum/sugl/proj/finnic.html) will organise an international symposium, "RECONNECTING FINNIC", in Helsinki, November 15-16, 2002. The aim of the symposium is to discuss the state-of-art in Finnic studies, the perspectives of especially the minor, endangered Finnic languages (Karelian, Ludian, Vepsian, Ingrian, Votian, Livonian), and their possible contribution to general linguistic studies or vice versa.
> The symposium will consist of lectures given by linguists from Finland, Estonia, and other countries, and of workshops (according to present plans, there will be three of them: grammar and typology, ethno- and sociolinguistics, and areal and contact linguistics). Post-graduate or advanced undergraduate students in particular, working on themes that are or can be connected with the Finnic languages from a larger (e.g. diachronic, typological, areal) perspective, or with the minor Finnic languages, are especially encouraged to participate.
> For more information of the symposium, please visit its homepage (http://www.helsinki.fi/hum/sugl/proj/recfin/), where you will find an on-line registration form. Deadline for registration to the workshops is June 30, 2002.
