Comparative Indo-European Linguistics (CIEL) Seminars

The Comparative Indo-European Linguistics Seminars are held approximately once every two to three months at Leiden University. True to their name, the seminars focus mostly on Indo-European linguistic matters, and offer scholars from Leiden and abroad a platform to discuss their research and exchange ideas in a collaborative and informal atmosphere.

All those interested in Indo-European linguistics are cordially invited to attend seminars or to propose a lecture themselves. Past seminars include lectures by visiting scholars, dry-runs for conference talks and reading sessions, where texts passages written in various ancient Indo-European languages are read and discussed together with experts in the field.

Most seminars are followed by drinks, courtesy of Stichting VIET, allowing all Indo-Europeanists to meet and discuss.

Please contact the organiser, Xander Vertegaal, if you wish to be kept up to date about future seminars (via e-mail).
