Meeting Description:

The Department of Linguistics, in conjunction with the Indigenous
Language Institute in Santa Fe and the Nanbé Pueblo Language Program,
is hosting this year's 18th Annual Stabilizing Indigenous Languages
Symposium (SILS).

The SILS conferences on revitalizing and teaching indigenous languages
have been held annually since 1994, and this is the first time for it
to be hosted by UNM. Past symposiums have featured a wide range of
presentations, from raising awareness of the value of native
languages, to developing and implementing community-based language
maintenance, revitalization, and teaching programs, to developing
indigenous language textbooks useful for children, and even to
developing smart-phone applications in indigenous languages.

The theme of this year's conference is 'Language and Community:
Building Collaboration in Revitalization Work.' Our website is still
under development, but if you visit it later this month at
http://linggraduate.unm.edu/sils/ , it will contain information about
the schedule and keynote speakers, along with a registration and
payment form.

Call for Papers:

We are accepting proposals for papers, posters, workshops, panels, and videos.

Please submit abstracts by April 8, 2011, of no more than 500 words to
2011SILS at gmail.com
