Language Revitalization in the 21st Century: Going Global Staying Local
May 31 - June 1, 2012
CUNY Graduate Center, New York City

The CUNY Graduate Center and the International Centre for Language Revitalization of the Auckland University of Technology will hold a two-day symposium on language revitalization in New York City May 31 - June 1, 2012. The first day will include two keynote addresses and a host of invited speakers, while the second day will include a poster session and film festival.

- Collaborative initiatives between communities and academics
- Increasing awareness of threatened languages and revitalization movements
