Language documentation and archiving during the Decade of Indigenous Languages
Conference banner

PARADISEC worked with ELAR to run this conference in October 2022. Many lessons have been learned in the last 20 years of documentation and archiving, and all over the world activists, communities, researchers, and artists have developed documentation projects, apps, art installations, archival collections, films, and multimedia projects telling the many stories and histories of Indigenous languages and their creators and keepers.

This conference brought together people working in this area to present papers, posters, and conduct training sessions aiming to develop capacity, present new approaches to documentation and preservation, and offer models of how we can create, strengthen, enhance, and amplify language records. Presentations are available on Youtube.
