3rd International Conference on Language Documentation & Conservation (ICLDC)
February 28, 2013 - March 3, 2013
Mānoa Campus, Hawaiâ€˜i Imin International Conference Center
The 3rd International Conference on Language Documentation and Conservation (ICLDC), â€œSharing Worlds of Knowledge,â€ will be held February 28-March 3, 2013, at the Hawaiâ€˜i Imin International Conference Center on the University of Hawaiâ€˜i at MÄnoa campus.
By popular demand, the 3rd ICLDC will be a full day longer than the previous two conferences. The conference program will feature two plenary talks, an integrated series of Master Class workshops, and social events. An optional Hilo Field Study (on the Big Island of Hawaiâ€˜i) to visit Hawaiian language revitalization programs in action will immediately follow the conference (March 4-5).
This yearâ€™s conference theme, â€œSharing Worlds of Knowledge,â€ intends to highlight the interdisciplinary nature of language documentation and the need to share methods for documenting the many aspects of human knowledge that language encodes. It aims to build on the strong momentum created by the 1st and 2nd ICLDCs to discuss research and revitalization approaches yielding rich records that can benefit both the field of language documentation and speech communities.
