Thank you so much for your participation in this workshop! Everything is ready and in place now, and we are looking forward to two days of exciting and interesting discussions about Afrikaans. See you all in just a few days.
Don’t hesitate to contact Marlie Coetzee if you have any questions.
A preliminary program for the workshop is now available under the “Program” tab at the top of the page. Plenary presentations have been allotted an hour (including questions), and all other presentations 35 minutes (including questions).
We are pleased to announce that we have confirmed two plenary speakers for the workshop. Both of them are first rate linguists who have produced important research on Afrikaans and Dutch.

We are very happy to report that the workshop in back on! As we had reported earlier, we had to cancel our plans for a workshop in Amsterdam this year. With the help of the staff at VivA, however, we have been able to move the workshop to Johannesburg for this year. Other than the location, the rest of the plans remain the same. We’re hoping to have a follow-up workshop in Amsterdam in the near future.
We apologize for the complications caused by the change in venue, but we hope to see many of you in Johannesburg in August!
