Linguistic Field(s): Language Documentation

Call Deadline: 31-Mar-2018

Meeting Description:

The theme of DLAP-3 will be ‘Working with Communities: Toward reclamation of linguistic and cultural heritage’. There will be a post-conference field trip to the Black Tai community in Petchaburi province.

The aim of the conference is to consider the benefits, methodologies, and challenges of working with communities in attempts to revitalize linguistic and cultural heritage. In order to build effective and sustainable “Linguistic and Cultural Heritage Documentation and Revitalization” movements, collaboration with communities is important, however, so far there has been limited accumulation of knowledge and tools. We therefore propose a forum for exchanging our experiences and thoughts about any aspect of working with communities.

Final Call for Papers:

The deadline for submissions has been extended to 31 March, 2018.

We welcome contributions on the conference theme and also those regarding the general topic of “Linguistic and Cultural Heritage Documentation and Revitalization”, particularly in Asian contexts.
