The Institute on Collaborative Language Research
CoLang is an opportunity for community language activists, linguists, and students of linguistics to receive training in skills needed to document, maintain, and/or revitalize minority languages. CoLang started in 2008 (as InField - the Institute on Field Linguistics and Language Documentation), and has been held every other year since.
The next CoLang will be held in 2018 at the University of Florida at Gainesville.
ELF was again a sponsor of CoLang 2016, held in Fairbanks, Alaska, on the campus of the University of Alaska. CoLang 2016 featured short courses on topics such as audio/video recording, data management, archiving, ethnobiology, language and well-being, language teaching, survey methods, and curriculum development, and then three weeks of intensive field methods practica.
ELF was a proud sponsor of CoLang 2014, which was held at the University of Texas at Arlington.
