Our workshop is an informal gathering of linguists, conservationists, and indigenous scholars working towards a more unified, locally informed, and multidisciplinary approach to language documentation and mapping. As such, we will work together to identify the key themes on which we wish to focus.
*The first day will give us an opportunity to get to know each other. This is intended to be a friendly meeting of colleagues with a shared interest in linguistic diversity. Each of us will have approximately fifteen minutes to give a short presentation introducing ourselves, our work, and our goals.
A central aim for the meeting is to identify ways in which we can better unite our efforts to understand and sustain global linguistic diversity.
