Endangered Language Initiative

The Endangered Language Initiative aims to promote the scientific study of endangered languages in the areas of teaching and research, and is also dedicated to educating the public and broader scientific community about the study of endangered languages. Opportunities for urban fieldwork on endangered languages are arranged in collaboration with the Endangered Language Alliance. The Initiative sponsors a talk series and other special events. The Endangered Language Initiative is affiliated with the Mellon Committee on Globalization, an interdisciplinary research group at the Graduate Center. Prof. Juliette Blevins is the director.
