We are delighted to announce two new inter-departmental reading groups, which should help to encourage cross-disciplinary connections and research. One is on Endangered and Low-Resource Languages, and the other is on The Evolution of Language.

The two reading groups will meet in alternate weeks, beginning with the Endangered Language reading group on 22nd April. All meetings will take place on Fridays at 3:30-4:30pm, in the Library Room at the Leverhulme Centre for Human Evolutionary Studies (LCHES).

The reading group on Endangered and Low-Resource Languages is being co-organised with the Cambridge Endangered Languages and Cultures Group (CELC): http://groups.ds.cam.ac.uk/celc/index.html
