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.

Applications for Self-funded Participants are now open and are due October 8, 2018.

The purpose of the CBLRAA workshop is 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 Latin American researchers and community members about these themes. The workshop will involve short presentations by invited speakers as well as small and large-group activities meant to generate discussion. 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.

The workshop will take place in New York City on January 2 and 3, 2019 before the start of the annual meetings of the Linguistic Society of America (LSA) (https://www.linguisticsociety.org/event/lsa-2019-annual-meeting) and the Society for the Study of the Indigenous Languages of the Americas (SSILA) (https://ssila.org).

You are eligible to apply as a self-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; and 2) you have some formal or informal training in linguistics.

Preference will be given to applicants 1) whose participation is most likely to lead U.S.-based researchers to reflect on and reevaluate their own practices, 2) whose participation in the workshop is most likely to lead to new collaborations to document, revitalize, and maintain an Indigenous language or languages of the Americas, and 3) who are from regions or communities otherwise not represented at the workshop or SSILA meeting.

Please contact us with any questions: cblraa2019gmail.com.

This project is supported by the National Science Foundation Documenting Endangered Languages Program (BCS-1833155).
