Kioloa Papuanists’ Workshop

Now calling for papers and for registration of participants.
Following the successful recent Papuanists’ Workshops in Sydney, the ANU Papuanists will be hosting a weekend of Papuanist talks at the Kioloa coast campus (c. 3 hours from Canberra and 3.5 hours from Sydney) from 2 pm Friday 30th October to early afternoon Sunday 1st November, with a bushwalk up Pigeon House planned for the Saturday afternoon.
Anyone who has an interest in Papuan languages and linguistics is invited to come and present a paper or just listen to other people’s papers and join in the discussion.

We expect to be able to accommodate participants in dorm-style accommodation at Kioloa, and food will be organised economically on a kitty system. Please specify any dietary requests beforehand.
Papers may address any topic related to Papuan languages or linguistics any should specify whether a 20 or 40 minute presentation time is preferred.
The closing date for titles and abstracts is 20 September. Acceptances will be notified by 25 September.
To submit a title and abstract for a paper or to register interest in attending, e-mail kioloapapuan09 at-symbol gmail dot com. Please also specify the number of beds required. (We will try and fit in non-presenting partners and family if there is space, though presenters will be given priority; there are other accommodation options nearby).
