Linguistic Field(s): Anthropological Linguistics; Sociolinguistics

Meeting Description:

Each language is a unique key to a community's world view and culture and plays
a central role in transmitting historically-developed knowledge about specific,
biologically-diverse environments. There is an increasing awareness and
recognition of linguistic, cultural, and biodiversity as inter-related and
mutually supporting aspects of the diversity of life. As such, the crises
affecting these aspects--from biological extinction to disappearing
languages--appear to converge and even drive each other on. Understanding the
integrated nature of these crises is essential to working towards solutions.

As part of the UN-declared International Year of Biodiversity, on Friday and
Saturday, September 24th and 25th, 2010, Trace Foundation will convene the fifth
lecture in its lecture series Minority Languages in Today's Global Society. In
this event, we will examine the relationship between linguistic, cultural, and
biological diversity from the perspectives of traditional land use, livelihoods,
and medical knowledge.
