FIRST ANNOUNCEMENT AND CALL FOR PROPOSALS
The Department of Linguistics at the University of California, Santa Barbara, is pleased to announce the first:
INSTITUTE ON FIELD LINGUISTICS AND LANGUAGE DOCUMENTATION
Workshops: June 23rd - July 3, 2008
Field Training: July 7-August 1st, 2008
UC Santa Barbara Campus
The Institute on Field Linguistics and Language Documentation is designed for field linguists, graduate students, and language activists to receive training in current techniques and issues in language documentation, language maintenance, and language revitalization.
The WORKSHOP portion of the institute will offer workshops of differing lengths on a variety of topics such as technologies, archiving, life in the field, ethics, orthographies, and lexicography. A special curriculum designed specifically for native speakers interested in documenting their own languages will include workshops on basic linguistics, materials development, how to provide technical support to a community, and successful models of language maintenance and revitalization.
The FIELD TRAINING portion of the institute will be intensive, based on a traditional graduate course in field methods, but will specifically incorporate the techiques and technologies of the workshops into the course. We anticipate running two or three courses on different languages simultaneously.
