Language Endangerment and Revitalisation: The decade ahead, 12 July 2024
Date of Event
12th July 2024
Last Booking Date for this Event
1st July 2024


After an enforced hiatus due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the Cambridge Conference on Language Endangerment is now back for its tenth year! Themes it has explored within language endangerment include: language policy and planning, language documentation, the role of new technologies, orthography development, the role of schools, new speakers, revitalisation strategies and language change.

On this tenth anniversary of the conference, we invite participants to consider these themes and the way in which they will develop over the coming decade. What challenges lie ahead for endangered language communities, activists and academics engaged in reversing language shift? What theoretical frameworks are proving most successful in terms of the analysis of the linguistic structure of endangered languages? How will changing attitudes amongst speakers affect the success of language revitalisation? How will policy-makers shape language legislation and respond to the concerns of endangered language speech communities? Has the potential of new technologies been effectively engaged to support the documentation, description and revitalisation of endangered languages or has the role of these technologies been overplayed? How has the pandemic affected our field and endangered language communities? What, if any, is the lasting impact of Covid-19? 

Please note that all bookings and payment have to be made via this website. We regret that there is no provision for delegates to pay on the day.
