African Languages in the Nordic Countries

First Meeting, 8-10 December, 2000

African languages is a fairly new area of academic teaching and research in the Nordic countries. In the last decade, activities have started or expanded significantly at several universities. It is now time to establish better contacts between the people in the field who are active in our countries.

Thus the Department of Oriental and African Languages, Göteborg University, decided to host the 1st Nordic meeting on African languages.

The general idea was that we should get together to learn to know each other, to learn about the present situation concerning teaching and research in the countries and universities involved, and to investigate possible areas of cooperation between individuals and between institutions.

Selected papers from this meeting are published in Africa & Asia, no 1.
