Meeting Description:

CBLRAA 2019 is a workshop organized in conjunction with the annual meeting of the Society for the Study of the Indigenous Languages of the Americas (SSILA). The goal of the workshop is to promote and proliferate strategies for documenting and revitalizing American indigenous languages by finding ways to improve communication among community members, researchers, and institutions who engage in community-based language work. At the workshop we will discuss differences and similarities among the community-based approaches being applied, ethical and practical issues that arise, what we can learn from one another, and how we can maintain channels of communication and collaboration in the future.

Call for Funded Participants:

We invite applicants interested in participating in a workshop to improve communication among community members, researchers, and institutions who engage in community-based language work across the Americas. At the workshop we will discuss differences and similarities among the community-based approaches being applied, ethical and practical issues that arise, what we can learn from one another, and how we can maintain channels of communication and collaboration in the future. We especially want to hear from Indigenous and/or Latin American community members and researchers about these themes.

The current call is only for participants who will receive funding to attend the workshop. You are eligible to apply (or be nominated) to be a funded participant if:

1) you are actively involved in documentation, revitalization, reclamation or other type of project involving an Indigenous language or languages of the Americas;
2) you have some formal or informal training in linguistics; and
3) you are from an Indigenous community of the Americas. You may also nominate someone else as a funded participant. We will send out a separate call for self-funded participants later this year.

The workshop will be multilingual with support for speakers of Spanish, Portuguese, and English. If support in another language is needed, please contact us (cblraa2019gmail.com) and we will do our best to provide it.

This project is supported by the National Science Foundation Documenting Endangered Languages Program (BCS-1833155) and is organized by members of the Society for the Study of Indigenous Languages of the Americas (SSILA).
