Dear colleagues,

You are warmly invited to the conference Emerging Topics in Typology, which will take place as a series of online workshops between 25th October and 22nd November. Sessions during the conference are tailored to various time zones and the conference features presentations from current PhD candidates in typology from across the world.

Apart from showcasing the work of the next generation of typologists<https://www2.helsinki.fi/en/conferences/emerging-topics-in-typology/schedule>, the conference is also an opportunity for the typology community to meet, discuss current issues in the field and to introduce your current project to colleagues in an informal atmosphere during several side-events. The conference arose with the aim of providing support to current PhD scholars, who have been particularly hard hit by the past two Covid-years, because of fieldwork restrictions and limited options to receive feedback from senior colleagues on their work. But it also aims to provide a platform for all typologists to discuss, build connections and ask advice.

Participation in the conference is free of charge and without restrictions: you are welcome to attend a single talk or to follow the entire programme. In order to receive the link to the online sessions, please register for the conference here: https://elomake.helsinki.fi/lomakkeet/114007/lomake.html .

More details and the conference schedule are available on the conference’s website: https://www2.helsinki.fi/en/conferences/emerging-topics-in-typology (please check back for updates). We are very grateful to the many eminent colleagues who have volunteered to chair sessions at the conference and who provided detailed reviews on the abstracts for the presentations over the past months.

Should you have any queries or suggestions, please contact the organisers of ETT2021: ett2021 at easychair.org<mailto:ett2021 at easychair.org>. We are looking forward to seeing you at the conference!

Best wishes,
Ekatarina Aplonova, Jonathan Banks, Daniela Casartelli, Erika Just, Ellison Luk, Giulia Orlando, Anastasia Panova, Kyla Quinn, Lacina Silué Songfolo, Stef Spronck, Maria Vollmer, Katherine Walker and Aigul Zakirova.
