We organized the second Colloquium of Caucasus Studies that gives students, guest researchers, visitors, stuff members and others interested in the Caucasus the possibility to present their theses, term papers, and research topics and to discuss them in a friendly and open environment. The Colloquium is interdisciplinary with talks from political science, anthropology, and linguistics featuring Caucasian topics such as recent political events, ethnic minorities, grammatical descriptions of Caucasian languages, etc.
The next colloquium will take place during the winter term 2019/2020.
We hosted the second international LexCauc Workshop. 18 experts of Caucasian languages met in Jena and discussed the lexical database of the Caucasian languages. During the past year they have gathered lexical data of 18 East and West Caucasian languages, which will be included into the database that we are currently building up as part of the LexCauc Project.
