European research network on linguistics and languages of the Anatolia-Caucasus-Iran-Mesopotamia area
DISCOVER LACIM NETWORK
LACIM is an european network of linguists engaged in scientific research on the languages of Anatolia, the Caucasus, Iran and Mesopotamia. We are primarily interested in the interplay of contact and heritage that has given the region's current linguistic ecology, through millennia of interaction. As such, our research program transcends the boundaries of the different language families represented in the region and actively pursues an interdisciplinary approach.
LACIM has developed from workshops held at Inalco / Labex EFL in Paris in 2018 and 2019. Going forward, we will be holding regular activities including a biannual conference, summer schools and seminars / webinars .
