Meeting Description: Conference on Language Revitalization: Sleeping and Awakened Languages of the Gulf South
Tulane University, New Orleans, LA, March 7-9, 2014

It is our pleasure to formally invite you to attend the Conference on Language Revitalization: Sleeping and Awakened Languages of the Gulf South, sponsored by the New Orleans Center for the Gulf South and the Tulane Linguistics Program. The conference will be held March 7-9, 2014 at Tulane University in New Orleans. We anticipate a vibrant community of linguists, pedagogues,materials developers, and leaders.

The conference will include plenary speakers and panels on linguistic analyses, methodologies and materials for teaching and studying, and integration of technological tools. Our aim is to incorporate cultural and linguistic studies to produce tools that can be implemented by people for their own culture and language in order to strengthen their languages at any point in the revitalization process. We hope to provide a forum for an exchange of ideas and practices, materials, revitalization techniques, and networking opportunities.

Attendees will need to fund their travel and lodging. A light breakfast and a lunch on March 8 as well as a light breakfast on March 9 will be provided at the conference.
