Intersections of Language and Nature: Conservation, Documentation, and Access

Event date Event time Event location
06/09/2019 - 07/09/2019 9:00 am - 5:30 pm University of Pittsburgh, USA

A conference organised by the Creative Multilingualism Strand Two research team

In the UN International Year of Indigenous Languages we invite you to join us in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, September 6th and 7th to explore Intersections of Language and Nature: Conservation, Documentation, and Access.

The two-day symposium brings together scholars from indigenous communities, conservation practice, the arts, and academia to address the parallel threats facing linguistic and biological diversity and explore opportunities for collaboration.

As scholarship on biocultural diversity has demonstrated, interesting correlations have been observed across linguistic and biological diversity. Using Ethno-ornithology as a framework, we will investigate the potential for holistic approaches to conservation and scholarship implicit in these observations.

Closing date for registration is 1st September . For questions, please contact JNCLOWRI@pitt.edu.
