Message 2: CONFERENCE: ASPECTS OF BILINGUALISM IN THE ANCIENT WORLD

Date: Fri, 21 Nov 1997 14:06:52 +0200
From: Mark Janse <mark.janserug.ac.be>
Subject: CONFERENCE: ASPECTS OF BILINGUALISM IN THE ANCIENT WORLD


ASPECTS OF BILINGUALISM IN THE ANCIENT WORLD

THE UNIVERSITY OF READING (UK), 2-4 April 1998

An International conference on bilingualism organised by
Prof. J.N. Adams (Reading), Prof. Mark Janse (Gent) and Dr Stephen
C.R. Swain (Warwick) will be held at the University of Reading from
2-4 April 1998. Sixteen invited speakers from Britain and abroad will
give papers. No attempt will be made to achieve a comprehensive
coverage of language contact in the ancient Mediterranean world, but
the focus will instead be on Greek and Latin in contact both with each
other and with other languages. It is intended that some papers should
be linguistic in orientation (i.e. that they should take account of
recent research by linguists on bilingualism in modern societies,
relating the findings if possible to issues of ancient bilingualism),
but it is also obvious that historians and literary scholars commonly
address problems related to language contact. We hope that the
programme of papers will offer a combination of sociolinguistic,
literary, cultural and historical approaches to the subject.

Location: The conference will be held in the Faculty of Letters and
Social Sciences at the University of Reading.

Accommodation: Delegates will be put up in a modern University Hall of
Residence. All rooms have handbasins, and there are some rooms with
en-suite facilities. Please let us know if you require a room on the
ground floor. It is not possible to provide double rooms.

Meals: Breakfast is included in the price of accommodation and coffee,
lunch and tea are included in the conference fee. On the first night
there will a reception in the Ure Museum of Greek Archaeology hosted
by the Department of Classics. On the second night a conference dinner
will be held in the Orange Room, University of Reading. The price of
this will be 25 pounds to include wine.

Travel: Reading is easily reached by road and train.
Train: Reading is on the London to Bristol line and there are frequent
trains from Paddington. Reading is also easily accessible by train
from Oxford and the North. For those travelling by Eurostar, there is
a direct train service from Waterloo to Reading.
Road: Reading is some forty miles from London and can be reached via
the M4 motorway, junction 11.
Air: There is a direct bus link between Heathrow and Reading. A
regular train service runs between Gatwick and Reading.
