Meeting Description:

The Himalayan Languages Symposium was first held at Leiden University in
1995 and is now well-established an as an annual open forum for scholars of
all aspects of Himalayan languages. The focus of the conference is
geographical rather than language-based, reflecting the huge linguistic
diversity of the Himalaya, and the depth of contact and syncretism between
Himalayan languages and cultures.

In 2010, the Himalayan Languages Symposium is to be held in the UK for the
first time, and will run from 2 to 5 September at the School of Oriental
and African Studies. As the UK has a long tradition of scholarship in Asian
languages and cultures, we feel it is overdue that the Symposium is held
here, and we look forward to welcoming participants to London.

Call for Papers

Contributions are welcome on any language of the Greater Himalayan Region,
whether Tibeto-Burman, Indo-Aryan, Austroasiatic, Altaic, Hmong-Mien, Tai
or an isolate. Although language is the focus of the Symposium, specialists
from related disciplines such as philology, history, anthropology, archaeology
and prehistory are strongly encouraged to participate and cast light from their
respective angles on the study of Himalayan languages and language communities.

We invite abstracts for presentations on topics including, but not limited to:
- Descriptions of lesser-known languages
- Language change and variation
- Multilingualism and language contact
- Historical-comparative studies
- Typological studies
- Field reports
- Corpus-based analysis
- Language death and language preservation
- Language policy and language planning
- Ethnology and folklore
- Himalayan languages and new technologies
