program of the Agence Nationale de la Recherche (ANR) of the University of Lyon,
the Leiden University Centre of Linguistics of the Netherland, and the
Endangered Language Project (ELAP) of The School of Oriental and African Studies
(SOAS) of the University of London.
This international summer school on Language Documentation and Description will
include general presentations and workshops in English, with the possibility of
group discussions in French for linguists working in francophone countries.
Mornings will include keynote talks of general interest followed by group
discussions; afternoons will alternate linguistics fieldwork sessions and
workshops on new methods and technologies used in the Documentation -
Description - Archiving. Access to group discussions and work sessions will be
restricted to 50 selected participants.
There will be evening co-events with open admission including talks by
international guests, public debates on selected topics, exhibitions on
endangered languages, and film screening. A student conference will take place
at mid-point of the summer school and one of the AALLED program major
conferences on issues of work on endangered languages organized by the
University of Lyon will take place at the end of this summer school.
This summer school will launch the collaboration of the three participating
universities within the context of developping and running together a European
International Master in ''language description and documentation'' to start
academic year 2008-9. Watch the participating institutions websites for more
