The 6th international conference “LIVONICA. Livonian language, history, culture”

The Livonians, though one of the smallest nations in Europe, have had a significant role in the languages, history, and culture of the Baltic Sea region, while also maintaining their own unique linguistic and cultural identity up to the present. This conference of Livonian studies will feature presentations on a wide range of subjects relating to the Livonians: language and its documentation, sociolinguistics, language contact, history, archaeology, anthropology as well as studies focusing on more recent developments in the Livonian community, culture, folklore, ethnology, contemporary cultural processes and the interaction between these various areas.
