The network co-organizes the conference Formal Approaches to Creole Studies (5).

FACS-5 will take place on July 15- July 16, 2017 in Lexington (University of Kentucky).

FACS-5 follows up on three previous workshops,

– FACS-2, held in 2010 at ZAS, Berlin.
– FACS-3, held in 2012 at the University of Lisbon.

The workshop brings together scholars who share an interest in the formal study of Creole languages and to enhance the interaction between theoretical linguists and researchers ‘in the field’.
