Seventh Heritage Language Research Institute, June 17-21, 2013

The UCLA National Heritage Language Resource Center sponsors an annual
research institute which aims to support our principal mission of
developing the research base for heritage language education.

The Center invites applications for the Seventh Heritage Language
Research Institute, “Heritage Speakers and the Advantages of
Bilingualism.” Directed by Professor Maria Polinsky (Harvard), the
institute will take place from June 17-21, 2013, at the University of
Illinois at Chicago. Details on faculty, presenters, and information
on logistics can be viewed on our website. Registration is now open;
applications are due by 1 April.

The Seventh Institute will focus on the linguistic, cognitive, and
sociocultural advantages enjoyed by heritage speakers. Pedagogical
approaches that aim to build on the bilingual knowledge of these
speakers will be highlighted, as well as experimental methodologies in
language sciences and sociolinguistic aspects pertaining to heritage
language speakers.

Applications are invited from language instructors, linguists, and
researchers from other fields, including doctoral students and
post-doctoral fellows, whose current focus involves heritage language
teaching and/or 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.
