FYI: New Association of Semitic Linguistics


Author: Orel Beilinson

Linguistic Field(s): General Linguistics

FYI Body: A new association is being formed (now in the theoretical-to-practical stage) that is
intended to deal with Semitic Linguistics and Languages.

Our goals are to publish books, organise conferences and such activities to
promote and enrich the semitic studies research.

We'd be more than happy to get emails from people (students and scholars)
wishing to join as first members of the organisation. Right now we do not plan to
charge money for the membership.

For more information, or to indicate your interest in joining, please contact Orel
Beilinson at orel@harari.edu.pl.
