Meeting Description:

The International Seminar on Creole Languages provides ample opportunity
for scholars doing research on Creole languages to exchange ideas and
debate current issues in the field. We especially invite post-graduate
students at advanced M.A., doc- and post-doc level.

Each 3-hour session is dedicated to one specific aspect of Creole and
contact linguistics. It will be addressed by an experienced researcher, who
presents the main issues and critical questions from own research and
leads the discussion with the participants.

This year the topics focus on Contact Languages, L2 Acquisition, Corpora
Linguistics and Language Policy, which will relate to descriptive approaches
to creoles.

The conference language will be English (or Portuguese if the audience is
fluent in the language).

Furthermore, we are planning a poster session where anybody who's
interested is welcomed to present his own project or studies. There will be a
session for oral presentation and discussion of posters (10 min. each).

Invited speakers:
- Ana Maria Madeira (FCSH/UNL, Lisboa) - L2 Acquisition
- Clancy Clements (Indiana Univ., Bloomington, USA) - Contact languages
- Luís Batalha (ISCSP/UTL, Lisboa) - Language identity and language policy
- Tjerk Hagemeijer (CLUL/FLUL, Lisboa) - Corpora linguistics (for Santome
