Meeting Description:

The goal of this graduate workshop is to expose interested young researchers to up-to-date research and theories of contact linguistics with a specific focus on the Asia-Pacific region, an area of high linguistic diversity and a wealth of contact settings.

The topics included will allow the participants to broaden their knowledge of general issues in the research of language contact, as well as expose them to specific case-studies based on the tutors’ expertise. The workshop is geared towards graduate Linguistics students or advanced undergraduates. It is open to anyone; if, however, we receive more expressions of interest than we can accommodate, preference will be given to students of Asian-Pacific institutions and students researching or planning to research Asian-Pacific contact settings.

Registration of attendees to this workshop is still open until 10 June 2012. All those interested should email their CV and a short paragraph introducing themselves, their course of study and their research interests to: marioNumac.mo

The registration fee will be MOP 600.00 (+/- 75 USD; 57 EUR).

The workshop precedes the 1st Conference on Language contact in Asia and the Pacific (6-7 September 2012), which all participants are highly encouraged to attend and submit an abstract to.

This 3-day workshop consists of 3 intensive courses taught by invited external tutors, each one a renowned specialist in their field, and a local tutor from the University of Macau:

Session 1: Anthropology of Creole languages
Tutor: Prof. Christine Jourdan (Concordia University)

Session 2: Language endangerment and language maintenance: working with communities
Tutor: Prof. David Bradley (LaTrobe University)

Session 3: Portuguese in contact in Asia
Tutors: Dr. Hugo Cardoso (University of Coimbra) & Dr. Mário Pinharanda (University of Macau)
