Endangered Language Initiative
The Endangered Language Initiative at The Graduate Center aims to promote the scientific study of endangered languages in the areas of research and teaching.
The Endangered Language Initiative is also dedicated to educating the public and broader scientific community about the study of endangered languages. Fieldwork is encouraged and opportunities for urban fieldwork on endangered languages can be arranged in collaboration with The Endangered Language Alliance. The Initiative sponsors workshops, talks, visiting scholars, and other special events.
The Endangered Language Initiative is affiliated with the Mellon Committee on Globalization, an interdisciplinary research group at the Graduate Center, and is directed by Prof. Juliette Blevins in the Linguistics program.
