Université d’été DDL 2012 : documentation et description des langues
The fourth 3L (Lyon, London, Leiden) International Summer school, entitled “Endangered Languages – from Documentation to Revitalisation” took place between 1-13 July 2012 in Lyon, France, and explored the new developments that have been occurring in the field of language endangerment over the past twenty years. It was organised by the members of the Langues En Danger-Terrain, Documentation, Revitalisation (LED-TDR) team, who belong to the DDL and ICAR CNRS laboratories.
The videos of the LED TDR line of investigation launching event and the videos from the first (2008) Lyon summer school are available here :
The videos below are those of the plenary talks that were given by world-class specialists (program). Those talks address different possible definitions and approaches to endangered language revitalisation (L. Grenoble), documentation and archiving (F. Ameka, D. Nathan), as well as the connection between literacy and revitalisation (S. Pérez López). J. Martin discusses the case of Francoprovençal, a threatened language of the Lyon region in France. S. Mufene connects issues of language endangerment with wider language ecologies.
The summer school was trilingual (English, French, Spanish) and the talks are in one of those languages. Each presentation is accompanied by a PowerPoint document (which in turn may also be in another language). We advise you to open the PowerPoint document or to print it out so that you may follow the slides while watching the videos.
