CALL FOR PAPERS 
 
LANGUAGE DEATH, ENDANGERMENT, DOCUMENTATION AND REVITALIZATION
 
26th UWM Linguistics Symposium
University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee

DESCRIPTION
In a globalized world where hundreds of languages are expected to become
extinct in the 21st century, it is highly relevant to analyze the viability
and continuity of threatened languages. The purpose of this symposium is to
discuss this impending loss to humankind from a multidisciplinary
perspective.
 
We invite contributions for the assessment of this process from Linguistics,
Sociology, Psychology, Anthropology, Education, and related fields. Equally
welcome is the participation of practitioners in language revitalization
efforts. We wish to combine theoretical and practical perspectives for the
analysis of the linguistic and social processes involved in language death,
endangerment, documentation and revitalization.

Possible topics include the following:
- The genetic and areal distribution of endangered
  languages
- Structural characteristics of endangered
  languages
- Cultural characteristics of endangered language
  communities
- Causes of language endangerment
- Documentation of endangered languages
- Language revitalization programs and practices
- Academic ethics and advocacy in language
  endangerment
