Meeting Description:

The goal of this graduate workshop is to expose interested young
researchers to up-to-date research and theories of contact linguistics
with a specific focus on the Asia-Pacific region, an area of high
linguistic diversity and a wealth of contact settings.

The topics included will allow the participants to broaden their
knowledge of general issues in the research of language contact, as
well as expose them to specific case-studies based on the tutors’
expertise. The workshop is geared towards graduate Linguistics
students or advanced undergraduates. It is open to anyone; if,
however, we receive more expressions of interest than we can
accommodate, preference will be given to students of Asian-Pacific
institutions and students researching or planning to research
Asian-Pacific contact settings.

Registration of attendees to this workshop is still open until 10 June
2012. All those interested should email their CV and a short paragraph
introducing themselves, their course of study and their research
interests to: marioNumac.mo

The registration fee will be MOP 600.00 (+/- 75 USD; 57 EUR).

The workshop precedes the 1st Conference on Language contact in Asia
and the Pacific (6-7 September 2012), which all participants are
highly encouraged to attend and submit an abstract to.
