Focus: The 2014 Institute on Collaborative Language Research (CoLang/InField) will be held at The University of Texas at Arlington in June and July 2014. The Institute provides critical training to generate more and better fieldwork as a response to the global crisis of language endangerment.
Minimum Education Level: No Minimum

The 2014 Institute on Collaborative Language Research (InField/CoLang) will take place in Summer 2014 at UT Arlington, with Dr. Colleen Fitzgerald as director, funded in part thanks to National Science Foundation grant BCS# 263939. The theme of the 2014 Institute will be oriented around native american languages, but as with previous Institutes, there will be considerable international participation. The Institute takes place over a six week period in the summer, in years alternating with the LSA Summer Institute. It offers an opportunity for undergraduate and graduate students, practicing linguists, and indigenous community members to develop and refine skills and approaches to language documentation and revitalization. The Institute is designed to provide an opportunity for a diverse range of participants to become trained in a wide range of skills in community centered language documentation.

The Institute consists of two parts, lasting six weeks total. First, two weeks of intensive workshops focus on the practice and principles of documentary linguistics, ranging from new technology to interdisciplinary methods to best practices in ethical community collaborations. Following that, the Institute offers an optional four weeks of intensive field methods courses focused on several different endangered languages. These integrate the technology and documentation skills acquired during the preceding workshops. The entire six-week Institute thus offers those new to fieldwork the opportunity to put into practice the newly-acquired methods, technical skills, and collaborative approaches. Participants may choose to enrol only in the two week workshops. In terms of scheduling, we will convene during the following time periods: Workshops (June 16-27 2014), followed by the Field Methods/Practicum (June 30 – July 25, 2014).
