Meeting Description: 1st International CUA Conference on Endangered Languages will welcome 35 distinguished academics, scholars and community members to Ardahan from 13-16 October 2014. The regional focus of the conference is global, with a particular emphasis on the languages and cultures of the Caucasus. The aim is to bring this international discussion to a linguistic diverse and unique corner of the globe, through which local scholars across the Caucasus will be able to benefit in their work. The scholars are invited from a range of disciplines who are actively engaged in research projects and partnerships on different aspects of language endangered, documentation and revitalization.

The primary intent is not to address specific linguistic issues but rather emphasise the wider issues that affect all languages and share experiences and best practices in the field. Participants may wish to address issues such as the state of the field of language documentation, conservation and revitalization; experiences that reflect on establishing research centres and international research collaborations; or topics related to technology, data collection, archiving and preservation.

The conference will conclude with an action plan for which the ultimate goal is to establish an “Endangered Languages Research Centre” at Ardahan. The intellectual goals and governance of the Research Centre will be discussed at the conference.
