The TEAL Workshop was first launched in 1990 at the University of California, Irvine as a mid-size workshop intended to foster research on East Asian linguistics. It has been an important forum for presenting new theories and exchanging novel ideas that bear on East Asian languages with theoretical interests. Since 2002, the TEAL Workshop has been an international event. It was held at Doshisha University in 2002, at National Tsing Hua University in 2004, at Harvard University in 2005, at Hong Kong Polytechnic University in 2007, at University of Potsdam in 2008, at Peking University in 2010, and most recently at Hiroshima University in 2011.
