Engaged Humanities: preserving and revitalising endangered languages and cultural heritage

From 2017-11-15 to 2017-11-16, Warsaw, PL
The ‘Engaged Humanities: preserving and revitalising endangered languages and cultural heritage’ conference, will be held at the University of Warsaw, Poland, 15 - 16 November 2017.
Through a series of panel discussions, this Conference will explore issues ranging from Language vitality and well-being, to Community-based curriculum development and building a sense of success in teaching a minority language. Presentations will be replete with local examples, giving ample opportunity for collaboration and trans-regional learning.

The ENGHUM project was set up between The Faculty of 'Artes Liberales' at the University of Warsaw, the Department of Linguistics at SOAS, University of London and Leiden University’s Centre for Linguistics at the Faculty of Humanities and the Department of Archaeological Heritage within the Faculty of Archaeology.

The project focusses on language revitalisation and community-oriented programs, digital humanities, advanced methods of fieldwork and ethnolinguistic documentation, heritage studies as well as novel forms of collaboration with non-academic partners.
