Online workshop on Language and/or Nature in Southern Arabia

TheĀ  workshop will run from 1pm BST to enable participants in Saudi Arabia, Oman, Yemen, Qatar and the UAE to finish in time to break the fast during Ramadan. The workshops focus on, but are not exclusive to, early career researchers and speakers of the languages of southern Arabia. Each session includes between 4 and 7 speakers, who each speak for between 5 and 15 minutes. Sessions have attracted increasing numbers of participants, with 41 at the workshop held on 21st April. Workshops are designed to include both academic and non-academic presenters, with at least one presentation in one of the indigenous languages of Southern Arabia. Presentations are given in English, Arabic or Mehri. The workshops have been enthusiastically embraced, with a waiting list for presenters.
