  UCLA NHLRC annual Heritage Research

Dear Colleagues,

The UCLA National Heritage Language Resource Center sponsors an annual
research institute, established to support the Center's principal
mission of developing the research base for heritage language
education. Our 2012 institute will be co-sponsored by the NSEP
National Language Flagship Program as part of their Flagship Results
2012 initiative.

The Center invites applicants to participate in this program, the
Sixth Heritage Language Research Institute, From Overhearers to High
Proficiency Speakers: Advancing Heritage Learners' Skills. Directed by
Professor Maria Polinsky (Harvard), the institute will take place from
June 18-22, 2012, at UCLA. Further details can be viewed at

http://nhlrc.ucla.edu/events/institute/2012/ and the application page found at

Applications are due by March 1, 2012.

The Sixth Institute will focus on current linguistic research and its
implications for heritage language instruction, especially with regard
to higher levels of proficiency. Presenters, including several from
Language Flagship programs from around the U.S., will speak about
advanced heritage speakers' language skills as well as pedagogical
approaches that help heritage speakers acquire high levels of language

Applications are invited from linguists, language instructors, and
researchers, including doctoral students and post-doctoral fellows,
currently involved in heritage language teaching and research.
Limited funding will be available for graduate students and
post-doctoral fellows only.

Please share this information with your faculty and graduate students.
Feel free to contact me if you have any questions
(chik at international.ucla.edu).
