Afka iyo Suugaanta Soomaalida – Kulan-hawleedka Kowaad ee Af-aqoonka (Somali Language and Literature – First Linguistics Workshop)

Xarunta Dhaqanka ee Hargeysa | Hargeysa Cultural Centre
14-20 December 2015, Hargeysa, Somaliland

The objective of the workshop was to facilitate collaboration among scholars in the field of Somali language studies through presenting their ongoing projects or finished work. This also allowed others who are conducting research, studies, or simply take an interest in the domain of Somali linguistics to learn more about current issues and ideas in this field, and the audience at the workshop actually counted many participants besides the invited scholars, such as students, journalists and writers.


The Hargeysa Cultural Center was opened in August 2014 in Hargeysa, Somaliland. The Center was established by Redsea Cultural Foundation (RCF). Since its establishment, the Hargeysa Cultural Center has become an important feature in Hargeysa’s cultural landscape. The success of the center owes much to the respect that RCF has gained from its work on running the annual Hargeysa International Book Fair, which, now in its eighth year, has become one of the most admired cultural events in the region.
