The 8th International Conference on Bantu Languages

2-4th June 2021, University of Essex, UK

**UPDATE: Bantu 8 conference to be held online.**

The postponed Bantu 8 conference will be held entirely ONLINE. While we recognise that this will change the nature of the conference and our interaction, we also hope that this might enable a wider range of attendees, particularly those who might otherwise be unable to travel to the conference in person.

The conference will be held from 2-4 June 2021.

We are very pleased that our excellent line-up of invited speakers have agreed to speak in the online version of the conference and can confirm these as:

Professor Laura J. Downing (University of Gothenburg)

Dr Saudah Namyalo (Makerere University)

Dr Brent Henderson (University of Florida)

Registration details can be found on the 'practical information' tab.
