Dear participants of the Balcohi conference Uppsala 2005, dear interested friends,

this is to update you a bit of the current state of affairs:
as mentioned at the conference, Carina Jahani, Paul Titus and myself will edit a volume of
proceedings. We have indeed started to check the contributions which arrived so far and to edit
those we've decided to have in the volume.

Those authors who have not yet submitted their contributions are asked to do so at their earliest

We've decided to publish the volume at Reichert publishing house, like the proceedings of the
previous conference, and hope that this is fine for everyone.

Apologising for tooting my own horn, I'd like to notify you that my book on historical grammar of
Balochi (revised version of my PhD thesis) is available now, see

Likewise available is "Die Taliban im Land der Mittagssonne" by Prof. Lutz Rzehak of Berlin (see This small book contains the German translation of a
text written in Dari by the late Abdurrahman Pahwal Baloch from Nimruz / Afghanistan, with notes and
an introduction. The text is the memories of Abdurrahman from the time of the Taliban regime (*very*

With best wishes
Agnes Korn
