Online course on the East Caucasian languages by the Linguistic Convergence Laboratory
This fall the Linguistic Convergence Laboratory will organize a free online course on the East Caucasian (alias Nakh-Daghestanian) language family. The course consists of 13 lectures and will cover a variety of topics. Lecturers include experts from other institutes and members of the laboratory.
The course will start on October 14 with a lecture by Nina Dobrushina: “Language size, multilingualism, and marriage patterns in Daghestan”. Lectures will take place once a week on Wednesdays at 19:00-20:30 Moscow time (UTC+3) via Zoom. Note that the lecture by Johanna Nichols “Nakh-Daghestanian: Essential background, what's distinctive, why it's of interest to all of science” will take place on Friday October 16.
More information on the lectures and the full schedule can be found here.
The course is aimed at anyone who is interested in the East Caucasian languages (students, researchers, etc.). Participation is free, and it is possible to tune in for separate lectures (rather than follow the whole course). Participants do have to register (via this link) in advance to receive a link to the online meeting.
