Call for Papers for Language Documentation Collections: Assessment and Recognition


Language Documentation is an interdisciplinary approach to creating multi-purpose collections that exhibit and support language use—often for languages used by ethno-linguistic minorities. These collections are often made as part of linguistic work and often contain audio and video materials, representing speech, music, and cultural events.

We are seeking papers which address issues on how these collections should be assessed as part of scholarly work and how recognition should be given for the curation of these collections as part of scholarly work. See the linked full call for a list of specific issues.

We are interested in presenting a broad range of perspectives in this collection of papers. We are particularly interested in insights that field linguists, anthropologists, archivists, curators, librarians, self-documenting communities, and other language resource creators can provide to this discussion.
