We are pleased to announce that the 18th Himalayan Languages Symposium will be held at the Department of Linguistics, Banaras Hindu University, Varanasi, India on 10-12 September 2012.
The Himalayan Languages Symposium is an annual event that provides an open scholarly forum for scholars working on various aspects of languages of the greater Himalayas region: Burushaski, Kusunda, Tibeto-Burman, Indo-Iranian, Austroasiatic, Kradai, Andamanese, Nahali, Dravidian, or any other language of the area. The Symposium, in addition to Himalayan languages, also welcomes contributions from related disciplines such as history, anthropology, archaeology and prehistory of the greater Himalayan regions.
