      International Summer School in Language Documentation and Linguistic Diversity (LDLD): 1st announcement


      The Department of Linguistics at Stockholm University invites advanced students (PhD. or M.A. level) in linguistics and related fields to participate in The International Summer School in Language Documentation and Linguistic Diversity. The school will take place from Monday, 23 June to Friday, 4 July 2014 in Stockholm (Sweden)

      The Summer School in Language Documentation and Linguistic Diversity (LDLD) offers courses focusing on various aspects of language documentation, description and support, from both theoretical and practical perspectives. Courses cover a wide range of topics, from theoretical and methodological issues in language documentation, description and support to language typology, from areal linguistics to multilingualism, from social cognition to the documentation of semantic diversity. In addition, the Summer School offers practical training in fieldwork and documentation methods, audio and video recording techniques, software for language documentation (such as Toolbox, Flex, ELAN), and digital mapping. The Summer School will also host a student conference on Friday 27 June 2014.

      The school will draw upon the extensive expertise of the four main organizing institutions:

      ·      Endangered Languages Project, SOAS, University of London

      ·      Laboratory Dynamique Du Langage (DDL), Université de Lyon

      ·      Centre for Research on Bilingualism, Stockholm University

      ·      Department of Linguistics, Stockholm University
