Meeting Description:

This is the fifth international Workshop on Sino-Tibetan Languages of southwest China organized under the auspices of the Department of Chinese, Nankai University. The previous installments of this workshop tradition were held at Academia Sinica, Taipei in 2008, Peking University, Beijing in 2010, Centre National de la Research Scientifique (CNRS), Paris in 2013, and University of Washington, Seattle in 2016. In the vein of these previous events, and also as southwest China is home to a good number of little-explored Sino-Tibetan languages some of which are on the edge of extinction, this STLT-2019 will continue to seek the advancement of the study of non-Sinitic Sino-Tibetan languages of southwest China through international cooperation.

STLS-2019 will be held on August 21-23, 2019 at Nankai University, Tianjin, China. Abstracts are invited for presentations on any aspect of linguistic research on any variety of the non-Sinitic Sino-Tibetan languages of southwest China. Applicants are welcome to submit up to one single-authored and one co-authored abstracts.
