Meeting Description: Dravidian linguistics, the modern linguistic studies of the sixth largest families of language in world come of an age now. For the last two centuries the wide range of aspects of Dravidian languages from historical comparative to computational aspects has been studied. In addition to the different streams of classical and medieval grammatical traditions in each language, the modern treatment of these languages as an independent family is rightly started with the Note to the Introduction by Francis Whyte Ellis in 1816. Therefore, in 2016 the history of the modern study of Dravidian languages will reach to an age of 200 years development. For a better forward towards the future, it is a high time we have to initiate an assessment of the current status of linguistic studies in general and of course the more specifically the historical and comparative studies in Dravidian languages. Therefore, as a major programme of the Golden Jubilee celebrations of the Department of Linguistics (1963-), University of Kerala we are organizing a three days international seminar on The Current Trends in Dravidian Linguistics 27-29 May 2013.
