Meeting Description:

Join the 3rd Symposium on Education, Language and Sustainabilit in Hiroshima, Japan. The international symposium will begin with a welcome party followed by a two-day interdisciplinary platform for scholars, language educators, researchers, assistant language teachers, students, and practitioners. The theme of this year’s symposium is Language Perspectives on Holistic Sustainability.

Under the theme of Language Perspectives on Holistic Sustainability, SELSA 2015 will explore the following and related questions, but in a way that considers sustainability beyond its ecological dimensions.  This symposium considers the contributions that language can make to expanding the horizons of sustainability.

What is the role of language in maintaining affective ties with local landscapes?
How do language revitalization movements relate to holistic sustainability?
What relationships exist between endangered languages and unsustainable use of natural resources? unsustainable social structures?
Language that encodes unique relationships with the land is an important part of many ethnographically-described food production systems.  How does language change reflect changes in subsistence strategies? 
How is language stability related to sustainable uses of natural resources? sustainable social structure?
