Open sessions MultiLing and UiT PhD Summer School: Revitalisation and reclamation of Indigenous and minoritised languages
MultiLing/UiO and UiT (the research group Language and Identity Encounters in the Arctic, Dep. of Language and Culture) are together organising the PhD summer school Revitalisation and reclamation of Indigenous and minoritised languages.
We would like to invite anyone with an interest in the topic to attend the open sessions. Please see the attached programme for more information about the different open sessions.
The summer school focuses on revitalisation and reclamation of Indigenous and minoritised languages from diverse theoretical perspectives. Participants will be presented with central theories and methodologies in the field and explore processes of language revitalisation across social scales, from international to community and individual levels. The role of scholars as advocates or activists in minoritised language settings will also be discussed.
Leanne Hinton is a professor emerita of Linguistics at the University of California at Berkeley, and a co-founder and advisory member of the board of the Advocates for Indigenous California Language Survival. She is a co-designer and trainer for the Master-Apprentice Program and for the Breath of Life Archival Institutes for indigenous languages.
Hanna Outakoski is senior lecturer at Umeå University in Sweden. Her research interests are included in the wider field of language sociology and concern particularly multilingual literacy, writing instruction in heritage language context, and e-learning as a means of language revitalisation.
