Advances in the study of Kinyarwanda and Kirundi: Research questions, methods and directions

On 27 February 2021, an international workshop will be organized at JGU Mainz (to be held virtually) with a focus on current research topics in the study of the two Bantu languages Kinyarwanda and Kirundi (spoken in Rwanda, Burundi and adjacent areas). The workshop addresses colleagues working in all fields of linguistics (e.g. phonology, morphosyntax, sociolinguistics, anthropological linguistics etc.) and aims at bringing together scholars who share ideas and discuss recent topics that deal with the two languages Kinyarwanda and Kirundi and closely-related varieties. All interested scholars are invited to send a tentative title of their talk (either intended as 20 min talk plus 10 min discussion, or 30 min talk plus 15 min discussion) to nassenstein@uni-mainz.de by 31 January 2020. The event is open to colleagues from other disciplines and to students.

Venue: Online workshop

Date and time: Saturday, 27 February 2021 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The program will be announced in early February, the link for participation will be shared a few days before the event. Murakoze cyane!
