Current activities and planned events
HALS is a very diverse group. Our members are involved in a broad of activities, and this is the place to check out for what is currently going on or planned for the near future. In 2016, we were mainly busy with the HALS field trip to South Africa which took place in May 2016. Shortly after, the African Studies Programme at the University in collaboration with HALS and the Finnish Oriental Society hosted the 6th International Conference on Bantu Languages in Helsinki, 20-23 June 2016. More information is available on the conference website of Bantu 6.
