Introduction

The Himalayan Languages Symposium was first held at Leiden University in 1995 and is now well-established an as an annual open forum for scholars of all aspects of Himalayan languages. The focus of the conference is geographical rather than language-based, reflecting the huge linguistic diversity of the Himalaya, and the depth of contact and syncretism between Himalayan languages and cultures.

In 2010, the Himalayan Languages Symposium is to be held in the UK for the first time, and will run from 2 to 5 September at the School of Oriental and African Studies. As the UK has a long tradition of scholarship in Asian languages and cultures, we feel it is overdue that the Symposium is held here, and we look forward to welcoming participants to London.
