New technologies present linguists with challenges as well as opportunities. This conference invites researchers working with endangered languages to consider the relationship between modern and traditional techniques with a view to achieving a practicable synthesis, but also to tackle the fundamental question as to how, and indeed whether, the functional application of new technologies can be enhanced beyond mere superficies.
Abstracts (200 words maximum) are due by Thursday 15 March 2012 and should be sent to the conference organisers, Mari Jones (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Christopher Connolly (email@example.com).
Conference: 6 July 2012 at CRASSH, University of Cambridge
