“Remote Fieldwork with Endangered and Minority Language Communities: Challenges and Opportunities for Documentary Linguistics” Research in language documentation and conservation is built upon close collaborations between linguists and members of communities who speak/sign a minoritized language. These relationships are ideally built upon an understanding that language work should be beneficial to both community and academic goals. They are often long-term and involve training and capacity building. The COVID-19 pandemic disrupted these collaborations, causing linguists and others to re-imagine language research—often resulting in new and innovative approaches employing remote field work. In this panel, students and faculty discuss the resulting challenges and opportunities now emerging in documentary linguistics.
