Dear colleagues

Endangered Languages Week will be held at the School of Oriental
and African Studies in London from 1st to 11th May 2012. This year's
focus is on Language, Performance and Culture. We will present films,
talks, and performances about endangered languages and cultures
over the week. Bob Holman, poet, film maker and co-director of the
Endangered Language Alliance in New York City will present aspects
of his work. Diaspora communities in London (including Sherpa,
Kurdish and Maori singing groups) will also perform.

Open Day will be held on 9th May 11am to 5pm in The Rausing Room
(R201).
