Meeting Description:

We would like to invite you to attend the upcoming CoLang 2012
(formerly InField) summer institute to be held at the University of
Kansas. CoLang 2012 is a six-week Institute on Collaborative Language
Research (formerly InField). The Institute provides an opportunity for
graduate students, practicing linguists, and community linguists to
become trained in a wide range of skills in community-centered
language documentation.

Held in 2008 (University of California, Santa Barbara) and 2010
(University of Oregon), the six-week institute consists of two parts:
the Workshops - two weeks of intensive workshops on the practice of
documentary linguistics, followed by a Practicum - a four-week
apprenticeship in the application of linguistic science and technology
to on-site empirical documentation (a.k.a. 'field linguistics'). Those
who enroll in the Practicum are required to enroll in the preceding
Workshops, thereby receiving an intensive course in documentary best
practices before putting these skills to use. Participants may choose
to enroll only in the two-week Workshops. Completion certificates (but
no academic credit) will be awarded.

Practicum Languages Offered (http://idrh.ku.edu/colang2012/practicum/):

Tlingit: NaDene language family
Amazigh (Berber): Afro-Asiatic language family
Uda: Niger-Congo language family
Cherokee: Iroquoian language family

Tuition: $750 for the Workshops; $1500 for the Workshops + Practicum
(after 30 April late fees apply)

Registration (http://linguistlist.org/CoLang/2012):

All international participants should register by 15 January 2012 for
visa and travel purposes. International participants will still be
able to register after this date, but may not be able to obtain a visa
in time.


Campus housing at the University of Kansas is available to early
registrants. Housing costs and a meal plan will be added to your total
tuition costs at the time of registration. Campus housing is available
until 20 May 2012. Visit the registration page for more details.

Upcoming Deadline:

April 30, 2012 is the last registration day to receive the regular
Workshop and Practicum pricing. A late registration fee will be
charged after this date.

We hope to see at this upcoming CoLang 2012 summer institute!
