Meeting Description: The Nilo-Saharan Linguistics Colloquium is an international forum established by leading academics in the field of Nilo-Saharan studies, which covers a large geographical area – from Ethiopia, Kenya and Tanzania in the east to Mali, Niger and Nigeria in the west. The forum was established some three decades ago in order to discuss, debate and disseminate developments in the field on a regular basis. Since its inceptions in the 1986 the gathering had conducted 12 colloquia in the various parts of the world and the last one (the 12th Nilo-Saharan Colloquium) was hosted by the Department of Linguistics and Languages of the University of Nairobi, Kenya, in September 2015. Over the years, Nilo-Saharan studies has become one of the most vibrant and innovative fields in African linguistics. It is the close collaboration of linguists of the various universities in Africa, North America, Europe and Asia that made it an exciting, diversified and highly productive field of study. At the end of the 12th Nilo-Saharan Linguistics Colloquium, the Department of Linguistics of Addis Ababa University, Ethiopia, for the first time, has been given the mandate to host the 13th Nilo-Saharan Linguistics Colloquium in May 2017.
