Meeting Description:

The Institute on Field Linguistics and Language Documentation is designed for
field linguists, graduate students, and language activists to receive training
in current techniques and issues in language documentation, language
maintenance, and language revitalization.
Workshops: June 23rd - July 3, 2008
Field Training: July 7-August 1st, 2008
UC Santa Barbara Campus

The Workshop portion of the institute will offer workshops of differing lengths
on a variety of topics such as technologies, archiving, life in the field,
ethics, orthographies, and lexicography. A special curriculum designed
specifically for native speakers interested in documenting their own languages
will include workshops on basic linguistics, materials development, how to
provide technical support to a community, and successful models of language
maintenance and revitalization.

The Field Training portion of the institute will be intensive, based on a
traditional graduate course in field methods, but will specifically incorporate
the techniques and technologies of the workshops into the course. We anticipate
running two or three courses on different languages simultaneously.

Call for Proposals for InField Workshops: If you would like to offer a workshop,
please submit a (short!) proposal by September 15th.
Check the website for the Call for Proposals and future updates; the final
curriculum will be circulated in the fall.
