3rd Summer School of the ARC Centre of Excellence for the Dynamics of Language

Thursday 31 August 2017

When: 27 November-1 December 2017

Where: The Australian National University, Canberra

The CoEDL Summer Schools are the flagship educational series of the ARC Centre of Excellence for the Dynamics of Language, open to Australian and international students and researchers. Previous successful CoEDL Summer Schools were held at Western Sydney University (2015) and the University of Melbourne (2016). CoEDL Summer Schools draw on expertise across CoEDL's programs and nodes, other Australian linguistics departments, and our international partners to offer educational enrichment and catalyse new research collaborations. Linguists of all backgrounds and interests are welcome; in previous years CoEDL Summer Schools have attracted diverse cohorts ranging from advanced undergraduate students through to professors.

This year’s CoEDL Summer School, with a general Typology theme, will be held from 27 November through 1 December, 2017, at the Australian National University. The Summer School will feature twelve themed courses, on the state-of-the-art in African and Tibeto-Burman linguistics, processing from a typological perspective, the interface between Australian archeology, genetics, and linguistics, and many more topics. This year, participants can further pick and choose single units within these. 

CoEDL has some support for students and unwaged people to attend the summer school.  Deadline 4th August. Click here for further information: http://www.dynamicsoflanguage.edu.au/education-and-outreach/train-with-us/summer-school-2017/travel-assistance/
