> Dear colleagues,
> May I draw your attention to a conference I am co-organising at the Collegium with my fellow archeologists: “Down by the water: Interdisciplinary symposium on the role of water transit points in past societies” (dates: 5-7 Nov 2019, deadline: 30 Apr 2019).
> This is planned as a truly interdisciplinary conference where one of the four sessions will be devoted to linguistic perspectives on waterways. We welcome papers presenting language facts intrinsically connected to waterways, such as language dispersal through waterways, language contact occurring at water crossing points, multilingual areas located along rivers, etc. The linguistic plenary talk will be delivered by Rik van Gijn, who combines qualitative and quantitative methods to investigate the interconnection between river systems and languages of South America. Together with his colleagues at the University of Zurich, he has proposed an approach to identify probable pathways of language diffusion along the Amazon River network, combining ideas from route planning (i.e. looking for possible routes of linguistic diffusion along the river network) and route inference (i.e. testing the possible routes against evidence from linguistic data). 
> It would be interesting to see how the relevance of waterways to communities can shape languages they speak, and to present this connection to colleagues from other disciplines. Likewise, the hope is that linguists can benefit from a different perspective on the same object that historians and archeologists will share during this conference. See a detailed call for papers in the attachment.
> I am organising the linguistic part of this conference and would be glad to answer any questions you might have!
