3L Summer School in Lyon, France, July 2012

The fourth International Summer School of the 3L Consortium (Lyon, London, Leiden) will be hosted by the LED-TDR team (Langues En Danger-Terrain, Documentation, Revitalisation), members of the DDL and ICAR laboratories (University Lumière-Lyon 2 and ENS Lyon, France), from 1st to 13 July 2012.

It follows on from the highly successful 3L Summer Schools in Lyon 2008, London 2009 and Leiden 2010.

The 2012 3L Summer School will concentrate on the theme of Endangered Languages Revitalisation. The main objective will be to create a space of reflection in an academic setting on the growing number of projects of revitalisation around the world. Based on an analysis of current and planned projects, it will promote a critical outlook on fieldwork in contexts of language revitalisation. The summer school includes lectures, courses and workshops, and thematic evening events, and sessions will be available in English, French and Spanish. It includes an International Conference on 6th and 7th July entitled: “1992-2012: twenty years of research on language endangerment” with the participation of international researchers, and of the main institutions involved in issues of language endangerment. There will also be a Junior Researchers Conference on 11th July for participants who wish to present their work from a critical perspective.

The website and registration form [.pdf] for the 3L Summer School is now available.

The deadline for registration is 31st March.

Here at Endangered Languages and Cultures, we fully welcome your opinion, questions and comments on any post, and all posts will have an active comments form. However if you have never commented before, your comment may take some time before it is approved. Subsequent comments from you should appear immediately.

We will not edit any comments unless asked to, or unless there have been html coding errors, broken links, or formatting errors. We still reserve the right to censor any comment that the administrators deem to be unnecessarily derogatory or offensive, libellous or unhelpful, and we have an active spam filter that may reject your comment if it contains too many links or otherwise fits the description of spam. If this happens erroneously, email the author of the post and let them know. And note that given the huge amount of spam that all WordPress blogs receive on a daily basis (hundreds) it is not possible to sift through them all and find the ham.

In addition to the above, we ask that you please observe the Gricean maxims:

*Be relevant: That is, stay reasonably on topic.

*Be truthful: This goes without saying; don’t give us any nonsense.

*Be concise: Say as much as you need to without being unnecessarily long-winded.

*Be perspicuous: This last one needs no explanation.

We permit comments and trackbacks on our articles. Anyone may comment. Comments are subject to moderation, filtering, spell checking, editing, and removal without cause or justification.

All comments are reviewed by comment spamming software and by the site administrators and may be removed without cause at any time. All information provided is volunteered by you. Any website address provided in the URL will be linked to from your name, if you wish to include such information. We do not collect and save information provided when commenting such as email address and will not use this information except where indicated. This site and its representatives will not be held responsible for errors in any comment submissions.

Again, we repeat: We reserve all rights of refusal and deletion of any and all comments and trackbacks.
