*The DELAMAN Franz Boas Award *

DELAMAN, the Digital Endangered Languages and Musics Archives Network (
http://www.delaman.org/), has now established the award in honour of Franz
Boas in recognition of significant contributions to the documentation of
endangered languages.

DELAMAN is inviting nominations for the first award for a documentary
collection of an endangered or moribund language. The DELAMAN Franz Boas
Award recognizes and honours junior scholars (Ph.D. awarded January 1, 2011
or later; early career documenters employed less than 5 years) who have
done outstanding documentary work in creating a rich multimedia documentary
collection of a particular language that is endangered or no longer spoken.
The language documentation collection must be archived and made accessible
in a DELAMAN archive (with no or only minimal access restrictions).

To submit a nomination and for information about the award go to:


The award consists of a payment of $500.  The *International Conference on
Language Documentation and Conservation (ICLDC)
<http://www.icldc-hawaii.org/> *will cover airfare and on-campus lodging up
to a maximum of US$1500 to bring the winner to Honolulu for the 2017
conference to receive the award. In addition, members of the DELAMAN board
will publish a review of the the prize-winning work in *Language
Documentation and Conservation.*
