We are pleased to announce that the next Arbeitstagung der Indogermanischen Gesellschaft will be held from 5 to 7 September 2022 at the Leiden University Centre for Linguistics. The event is currently planned to take place on site with the possibility of online attendance. In case travel proves difficult, we may shift to a hybrid or completely online event.
The field of Indo-European Linguistics currently finds itself at the center of a scientific revolution. Complementing the traditional arguments from archaeology and historical linguistics, advances in the study of ancient DNA and stable isotopes have opened a new line of evidence on the human past. It is the task of Indo-European linguistics to confront the resulting new challenges and opportunities. While the debate on the Proto-Indo-European homeland has been addressed by several large cross-disciplinary studies, key questions remain concerning the movements, settlements and secondary centers of spread of the Indo-European daughter branches. The aim of this conference is to evaluate existing and explore new linguistic hypotheses concerning the routes and secondary homelands of the branches of Indo-European after the split of the proto-language.
