CoLang: Institute on Collaborative Language Research

The Institute on Collaborative Language Research (CoLang) will be held on the campus of the University of Florida in 2018, June 18th – July 20th.   During the first two weeks (June 18-29) we offer students the choice of about forty-eight workshops in all kinds of topics related to community-based language documentation and revitalization.  During the following three weeks (July 2-20), we offer three intensive practica which allow students to put the principles learned in the first two weeks into practice with detailed study of particular languages.

The institute is designed to provide an opportunity for community language activists and linguists to receive training in community-based language documentation and revitalization. The Institute has previously been convened in California, Oregon, Kansas, Texas, and Alaska and attracts a diverse range of participants from across the globe. Instructors include some of the world’s leading experts in language documentation.

CoLang 2018 is sponsored by the National Science Foundation (BCS-1664464), the Linguistic Society of America, and the University of Florida.
