The 2011 Symposium on Teaching and Learning Indigenous Languages of Latin
America (STLILLA 2011) will bring together instructors, practitioners,
activists, indigenous leaders, scholars and learners of indigenous
languages. The symposium will focus on research and pedagogy related to the
diverse languages and cultures of indigenous populations in Latin America
and the Caribbean.

This second symposium will build on the accomplishments of the *2008
Symposium on Teaching Indigenous Languages of Latin America
*, the first initiative of this scope in the world, which resulted in the
formation of the Association for Teaching and Learning Indigenous Languages
of Latin America

Our distinguished keynote speakers are: Demetrio Cojtí
Alan Durston<https://kellogg.nd.edu/projects/quechua/STLILLA/keynote.shtml#AD>,
Bruce Mannheim<https://kellogg.nd.edu/projects/quechua/STLILLA/keynote.shtml#BM>,
Camilla Townsend<https://kellogg.nd.edu/projects/quechua/STLILLA/keynote.shtml#CT>and
van Doesburg<https://kellogg.nd.edu/projects/quechua/STLILLA/keynote.shtml#GBvD>

These symposia aim to engage participants in a hemispheric dialogue and also
to serve as a forum for networking and exchanging ideas, experiences and
research on pedagogical, methodological, and practical issues from
cross-disciplinary perspectives. Active listening and discussion enable
professionals from around the world to interact with leading experts in the
fields of education, language policy and planning, theoretical linguistics,
Latin American studies, applied linguistics, anthropology, sociolinguistics,
linguistic anthropology, and informatics. Through multiple venues such as
keynotes addresses, special panels, interactive workshops, round table
discussions, poster sessions, and technological tools showcases, the
symposia contribute to the teaching, learning, dissemination, maintenance,
and revitalization of indigenous languages and cultures of the region.

STLILLA 2011 will be hosted by the Kellogg Institute for International
Studies <http://kellogg.nd.edu/> at the University of Notre Dame in
collaboration with the partner institutions listed below. The first
symposium was hosted by the Minority Languages and Cultures of Latin America
Program (MLCP) and the Center for Latin American and Caribbean Studies
(CLACS) at Indiana University. It is hoped that STLILLA will become a
regularly occurring event moving among its partner institutions.

*The following indigenous languages will be represented in diverse sessions
at this hemispheric conference: Katchikel, several varieties of Quechua,
Aymara, Nahuatl, Mixetec, Zapotec, Cuicate, Mazatec, Nawalja' K'iché,
