16th Himalayan Languages Symposium on 2-5 September

Introduction

In 2000 Professor Christopher Beckwith of Indiana University initiated the Medieval Tibeto-Burman Languages Symposium with the aim of raising the methodological rigour of Tibeto-Burman historical linguistics to that of other language families such as Indo-European or Uralic.

A major aim of this meeting is to stimulate interaction among scholars working on different languages in Tibeto-Burman and approaching them from different perspectives.

Papers of any kind dealing with primary texts in the older Tibeto-Burman languages are welcome, whether the focus be linguistic, philological, textual, historical or literary. Also welcome are contributions on any Tibeto-Burman languages with a pre-modern literary tradition. These include but are not limited to Bailang, Burmese, Lepcha, Manipuri, Nam, Naxi, Tangut, Tibetan, Yi, and Zhangzhung.
