Community ownership of language education for endangered language revitalization

Indigenous and minority language communities have experienced many types and styles of external control and intentional manipulation of their language use. In order to reverse the language shift that has resulted from these practices, communities increasingly turn to different approaches for language learning, looking both to indigenous or traditional methods and to innovative ideas. Making such choices demands community ownership, not just of methods of language learning, but also of the entire infrastructure of language education. In many cases this option is not freely available and is even hindered by those in control (governments, institutions); communities will, in addition, seek ways of successfully enacting their choices.

This radical change will naturally lead to innovative descriptions of language, as well, and these
will inevitably change linguistic description and theory.

Accepted abstracts will be included in the pre-conference proceedings. Authors will be invited to submit full papers after the conference, which will be peer-reviewed for possible inclusion in the FEL Yearbook for 2022, to be published by Brill.
