Co-Lang 2012: Institute on Collaborative Language Research

Institute for Digital Research in the Humanities

Mon., Jul. 2, 2012, 9:00am - Fri., Jul. 27, 2012, 3:00pm
Sponsored by the National Science Foundation.

Co-Lang 2012 is a six-week Institute on Collaborative Language Research (formerly InField), to be held at the University of Kansas in the summer of 2012. The Institute is designed to provide an opportunity for graduate students and faculty, practicing linguists, and community linguists to become trained in a wide range of skills in community-centered language documentation. Successfully held in 2008 (UCSB) and 2010 (U of Oregon), the six-week institute consists of two parts: the Work­shops - two weeks of intensive workshops on the practice of documentary linguistics – followed by a Practicum – a four-week apprenticeship in the application of linguistic science and technology to on-site empirical documentation (a.k.a. "field linguistics"). The two parts are integrated, as students who enroll in the Practicum are required to enroll in the preceding Workshops, thereby receiving an intensive course in documentary best practices before putting these skills to use. Participants may choose to enroll only in the two-week Workshops.

International participants must register by January 15, 2012. You may register after this date, but past experience shows that you may not be able to obtain a visa in time. Regular-price registration lasts until April 30, 2012.
