Meeting Description:

Workshop: Phonetics and Phonology of Australian Indigenous Languages

Registration is now open for the 2-day collaborative research event: Phonetics and Phonology of Australian Indigenous Languages, sponsored by ASSTA, MARCS Institute, and the School of Humanities & Communication Arts at UWS. The workshop will take place at the Bankstown campus of UWS on 13-14 June 2013.

The aim of the workshop is to bring together specialists to discuss current theoretical issues around the phonetics and phonology of Australian Indigenous languages in order to produce outlines for research projects involving interdisciplinary collaboration. The first day features plenary presentations of strategic initiatives by six experts in the field. On the second day, these leads will be taken up by smaller project groups with the specific aim to generate viable outlines of proposals that will then be further developed for submission to national and international funding bodies.

Registration is required: Space is limited, so please register soon.

Registration closes on 7 June.
