*apologies for cross postings*

*The Canadian Indigenous Languages and Literacy Development Institute
(CILLDI)* at the University of Alberta invites you to our 14th Annual
Summer School, July 8-26 in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.  This summer we are
offering a total of 20 University-accredited courses in the areas of
language documentation, education and revitalization.  Credit is available
at both the graduate and undergraduate level, and bursaries/scholarships
are available *for both Canadian and International students*.

For the first time this year, we are offering a full three weeks of
intensive *Cree and Michif* language courses.  In addition, we are proud to
offer two brand new courses this summer:

*LING 311 Online Tools for language Revitalization*
*This course provides an introduction to the use of new technologies to aid
in language revitalization in both home communities and urban settings.
Topics will include computer-based learning tools, online language courses,
and the innovative use of social media sites.  Students will examine how
these new technologies are being used in indigenous language communities
around the world, and will design a language technology plan appropriate
for their own community.*

*ANTH 485 Landscape, Meaning and Culture: The Social Meaning of Place*
*This course explores how and why particular places are invested with
social meaning by different cultural and linguistic groups.  Students will
analyze place-naming practices in their own and other Indigenous languages,
and examine the ways in which people talk about place in both  conversation
and narrative.  Students will also investigate various perspectives on
map-making, and the ways in which Indigenous cultural and worldview can be
incorporated into community mapping projects.*
