Dear colleagues

The Hans Rausing Endangered Language Programme at the School of
Oriental and African Studies is holding a one-day international
workshop on Saturday 27 February 2010, 9.30am - 6.00pm.

The goal of the workshop is to explore the sustainability of
endangered languages, and sustainability of research (in both theory
and practice). The keynote speaker is Lenore Grenoble from the
University of Chicago.

The call for papers has been extended until the end of January. We
would particularly welcome interdisciplinary papers, so please feel
free to circulate this to colleagues.

Issues to be discussed could include:

  1. how communities can sustain languages and linguistic ecologies
  2. links between language maintenance and sustainable human development
  3. preservation of traditional knowledge and indigenous paradigms of
teaching, learning, and research
  4. making the outcomes of our research sustainable
  5. whether sustaining languages and knowledge is something that
researchers can contribute to, or is solely the responsibility of
communities and speakers

Abstracts will be peer reviewed and should be a maximum of 300 words
(not including any references) and should be sent to: elap at soas.ac.uk.
For more details, and a registration form, see
http://www.hrelp.org/events/workshops/sustainability/index.html. The
workshop is one of the events for Endangered Languages Week 2010.

With many thanks, and apologies for cross-postings
