Meeting Description:

This workshop aims at connecting researchers working on linguistic, social
and educational approaches to the study of the Quechua languages. The
family of Quechua languages crosses borders in South America. Quechua
language varieties are spoken in Argentina, Bolivia, Colombia, Ecuador and
Peru by millions. It has been studied from multiple perspectives. From a
linguistic perspective, its study has enriched the comprehension of fields
like semantics, syntax, morphology and phonology. As a shared keystone of
the cultural heritage of indigenous peoples in South America, the Quechua
family of languages is associated with a continuum of cultural practices
and knowledge that has enriched our knowledge of human societies. As in the
case of many minority languages, current advances in technology have opened
the door to generate new ways of maintaining the vitality of this language
family through shared practices in research and education. Shared
databases, collaborative research by means of video-conferencing and
on-line tools for education are potential ways in which language
revitalization and maintenance can take place. The workshop intends to
further explore all these threads in a forum in which community-based
researchers and scholars can share perspectives and explore new
opportunities provided by technological advances to support the maintenance
and development of the Quechua languages and the Quechua-speaking communities.
