Project description

Studying the expansion of the Austronesian language family

Leading researchers from the humanities and sciences – from the fields of archaeology, anthropology, linguistics, biology and genetics – will come together to study the Austronesian expansion in the Pacific region. The EU-funded OCSEAN project will apply advanced statistical methods to contextualise the expansion of the Austronesian language family within the growing evidence for social and political complexity across Island Southeast Asia and coastal mainland regions prior to the arrival of rice and millet agriculture in Taiwan during the mid-5th millennium BCE. Researchers will also study the interactions since the spread of the Malayo-Polynesian branch of Austronesian languages outside of Taiwan. In addition to the findings, the project will also show how working with big data can lead to new insights at the small scale.
