LUCL Round Table Conference
The Department of African Languages and Cultures and the Leiden University Centre for Linguistics (LUCL) is organising a one-day workshop on the description and documentation of the signed and spoken languages of the Volta Basin (West Africa). The Volta Basin corresponds roughly to the geographical area in which the Kwa and Gur languages of the Niger-Congo phylum are spoken. 2007 marks the centenary of Diedrich Westermann's Grammatik des Ewe and it also marks the appearance of the first description of a sign language of the Volta Basin-the Adamorobe Sign Language of Ghana.

Congres The Dynamics of Identity in the Low Countries, 1300 - 1600
