Dates: 15-Jul-2019 - 19-Jul-2019
Location: Oxford, Ohio, USA

Focus: The mission of the National Breath of Life Archival Institute for Indigenous Languages (National BoL) is to work with endangered language communities to build capacity around methods in archives-based research for community-directed revitalization efforts.
Minimum Education Level: No Minimum
Special Qualifications: National BOL 2.0 will be of particular interest for members of communities whose languages are not currently spoken, though communities with speakers can also benefit by discovering new vocabulary, uncovering old speech styles, and otherwise finding and learning language information held in archival form.

Description:
National Breath of Life Archival Institute for Indigenous Languages is pleased to announce that we have received a National Endowment for the Humanities Digital Humanities Advancement Grant Level III (HAA-261218-18) to develop an advanced training program within the National Breath of Life Archival Institute for Indigenous Languages. As part of the ongoing development of the institute, we will release a new piece of software that will assist in the organization of archival materials you may have collected through a National BoL workshop. The software is called the Indigenous Languages Digital Archive or ILDA for short. You can find more information about the new National BoL workshops here.

National BoL will be holding two workshops offering training in the use of ILDA. The first workshop will be held on July 15-19, 2019 at Miami University in Oxford, OH. A second workshop will be held at the University of Oregon in Eugene, OR in 2020. Dates for the University of Oregon workshops have not yet been set.

Applications to the 2019 workshop are now open! Applications are due on December 15. Please visit the new National BoL website (nationalbreathoflife.org) for more information and for application details.
