2nd international conference on language documentation & conservation (icldc): strategies for moving forward (february 11-13, 2011)

The 1st ICLDC, with its theme "Supporting Small Languages Together," underscored the need for communities, linguists, and other academics to work in close collaboration. The theme of the 2nd ICLDC is "Strategies for Moving Forward." We aim to build on the strong momentum created at the 1st ICLDC and to discuss research and revitalization approaches yielding rich, accessible records which can benefit both the field of language documentation and speech communities.

Conference highlights include plenary talks by Keren D. Rice (University of Toronto), Wayan Arka (Australian National University/Udayana University), and Larry Kimura (University of Hawai'i at Hilo); three invited colloquia on "The Use of Film in Language Documentation," "Grammaticography," and "Dictionaries and Endangered Languages: Technology, Revitalization, and Collaboration;" and a wide assortment of optional pre-conference technical workshops (February 9-10). We hope you will join us.
