Meeting Description:

The Medieval Tibeto-Burman Languages Symposium
In 2000 Professor Christopher Beckwith of Indiana University initiated the
Medieval Tibeto-Burman Languages Symposium with the aim of raising the
methodological rigour of Tibeto-Burman historical linguistics to that of other
language families such as Indo-European or Uralic.

- The first three symposia were organised as panels of the meetings of the
International Association for Tibetan Studies.
- The fourth symposium was organized as a panel of the 41st International
Conference on Sino-Tibetan Languages and Linguistics at the School of Oriental
and African Studies (SOAS) in London in September 2008.
- This fifth meeting will be held as a panel of the 16th Himalayan Languages
Symposium (1-5 September, 2010) again also at SOAS.

The proceedings of the first three conferences have been published by Brill, and
the proceedings of the fourth conference will be out in time for the fifth.

Call for Papers

A major aim of this meeting is to stimulate interaction among scholars working
on different languages in Tibeto-Burman and approaching them from different

Papers of any kind dealing with primary texts in the older Tibeto-Burman

historical or literary. Also welcome are contributions on any Tibeto-Burman
languages with a pre-modern literary tradition. These include but are not
limited to Bailang, Burmese, Lepcha, Manipuri, Nam, Naxi, Tangut, Tibetan, Yi,
and Zhangzhung.
