FEL XVII - Endangered Languages Beyond Boundaries: Community Connections, Collaborative Approaches, and Cross-Disciplinary Research
Ottawa, Canada, October 2013
The 17th Conference of the Foundation for Endangered Languages (FEL) will be held October 1-4 at Carleton University, Ottawa, Canada.
Efforts world-wide to preserve, maintain, and revitalize endangered languages often encounter limited resources and funding. This points to the need for collaborative approaches and for the pooling of resources, whether on a local, national, or international scale. Such cooperative ventures extend beyond the constraints of boundaries, whether these involve linguistic or ethnic identities; geography; jurisdictions; community size, type and location (urban, rural, isolated); political or social considerations; language status (official or unofficial, dominant or minority); familial and generational ties; academic disciplines; or institutional or group affiliations.
Possible conference excursions and activities include: a pre-conference excursion (visit to Aboriginal community) Tuesday, October 1; a reception Tuesday evening October 1; a banquet Thursday October 3; and a post-conference two-day weekend trip October 5 and 6.
