WINTER SCHOOL
SAAMI LANGUAGE DOCUMENTATION AND REVITALIZATION
BODØ (NORWAY), 1–11 MARCH 2010

The winter school provides training in language
documentation and revitalization. The courses are
specifically designed for advanced students, scholars,
language teachers and activists and will provide a solid
grounding in the objectives of contemporary documentary
linguistics. Theoretical, practical, ethical and technical
aspects will be covered. The focus lies on documentary
linguistics, but the winter school will also provide
practical training in methods of language maintenance and
revitalization.

More information will soon be available at
http://www.linguistik.uni-kiel.de/sldr/.

VENUE AND PARTICIPATION
The winter school is held over two weeks from March 1–11 at
the Bodø University College. It will be open for anyone who
is interested in Saami languages, language documentation
and revitalization. Even students specializing in other
minority languages of Northern Europe are invited to
participate. We hope to attract students who are new to
language documentation as well as scholars or activists who
are already engaged in documentation and revitalization
efforts. Advanced students from the Saami communities will
be particularly encouraged to apply.
Prospective participants will need to demonstrate a minimum
of one year of academic training in linguistics or a
related field; or at least basic active knowledge of one of
the Saami languages.
There are places for 30 participants.
