It was about one and a half years ago that I finally I arrived where I had always wanted to be and do what I had always wanted-- teach students, support small language communities and conduct research on African languages on my doorstep. The University of Cape Town and my new colleagues welcomed my efforts to establish the Centre for African Language Diversity-- CALDi as well as The African Language Archive-- TALA and I was recently appointed the Mellon Research Chair: African Language Diversity this initiative. The main aim of CALDi is to train young African scholars in descriptive linguistics and open up space for research into African languages at UCT with the hopes of countering the dominance of African linguistics outside the continent.

Colour studies attracts an increasingly wide range of scholars from across the
academic world. Contributions to the present volume offer a broad perspective
on the field, ranging from studies of individual languages through papers on art,
architecture and heraldry to psychological examinations of aspects of colour
categorization, perception and preference. The chapters have been developed
from papers and posters presented at a conference on Progress in Colour
Studies (PICS08) held at the University of Glasgow. The volume both updates
research reported at the earlier PICS04 conference (published by Benjamins in
2006 as "Progress in Colour Studies" volumes 1 and 2), and introduces new and
exciting topics and developments in colour research. In order to make the
articles maximally accessible to a multidisciplinary readership, each of the six
sections following the initial theoretical papers begins with a short preface
describing and drawing together the themes of the chapters within that section.
There are seventeen colour illustrations.
