If you have a question about this talk, please contact Dr Oliver Mayeux.

This talk aims to demonstrate how the active involvement of linguists in community-led activities and of communities in academic research can contribute to a more inclusive and balanced relationship. The balancing of this relationship serves to empower minoritized communities, strengthen community actions, and bring about richer and more meaningful academic outputs by including indigenous/local perspectives in any type of academic research (Yamada 2007, 2014, Fitzgerald 2010). This could be achieved via the use and establishment (or strengthening) of mutually informative support networks for the active stakeholders from different backgrounds and interests, involved in endangered language research, documentation and/or revitalization.

This talk is part of the Cambridge Endangered Languages and Cultures Group series.
