Meeting Description:

As highly multilingual and diverse regions, Asia and the Pacific have over time witnessed intense language contact.

The conference will include keynote addresses by:

Jeff Siegel (University of New England, Australia)
David Bradley (Latrobe University, Australia)
Christine Jourdan (Concordia University, Canada)

The conference will be preceded by a graduate workshop for young researchers working on instances of language contact in the Asia-Pacific region, from September 3-5, at the University of Macau. See separate announcement.
