Meeting Description: CROSSLING Symposium: Language Contacts at the Crossroads of Disciplines
University of Eastern Finland, Joensuu
February 28-March 1, 2013

The goal of this symposium is to bring together scholars working on language contact, cross-linguistic influence or contact-induced change and variation within different disciplines. The symposium aims to promote cross-disciplinary and cross-methodological discussion in the study of language contact and strives for genuine discussion and cross-pollination between various disciplines and research traditions, their theories, methods, and data, and between researchers of different languages.

The invited speakers of the symposium are:

Gaëtanelle Gilquin (Université catholique de Louvain)
Svenja Kranich & Viktor Becher (Universität Hamburg)
Anna Verschik (Tallinna Ülikool)

The participation fee is 50 euros or 30 euros (students and PhD students).

The symposium is organized by CROSSLING, a young cross-disciplinary research network set up at the University of Eastern Finland. The network has received funding from the Kone foundation ( The researchers of CROSSLING combine different areas of research which deal with language contact: contact linguistics, second language acquisition research and translation studies, and they work with different languages and language pairs.
