Meeting Description: 

Displacement, or forced migration, can manifest in myriad ways including the
removal of indigenous people from their homelands, exile, and refugee
resettlement, and has been shown to have traumatic effects not only on the
people who are physically displaced but also on their offspring. We also
conceive displacement more broadly to include not only physical, but also
generational, social, ecological, and cultural displacement and its impact on
identity and community. Of course, the effects of displacement on language may
be devastating in any of these conceptualizations.

We hope to feature presentations addressing issues of language and
displacement as can be seen through studies of:

- Language and identity
- Language documentation and revitalization
- Ethnographic accounts
- Community and civic engagement
