Summer School 2019

Date: 2 – 6 December

Venue: Old Arts, The University of Melbourne, Parkville Campus

Our annual Summer School is a flagship educational event on Australia’s linguistics calendar. Over five days, we bring together leading national and international scholars to present the latest research in the field through intensive courses across the multidisciplinary breadth of the science of languages.

Summer School draws on expertise across the Centre’s programs, member universities and international partners to provide intensive training, enrich existing knowledge and catalyse new research collaborations. Participants range from advanced undergraduate students through to senior academics. Many of the courses require no previous knowledge or experience, only a burning curiosity about the dynamics of the world’s multifarious languages.


Full course details are available on the Course information page.

Further information about the venue, related activities and the instructors can be found on the pages in the left-hand side menu.
