Institute on Collaborative Language Research

After careful consideration, we have arrived at the difficult decision to cancel CoLang 2020. Due to the rapidly changing situation with COVID-19 in the United States and around the world, we believe that the risk is too great to continue with the Institute as planned. We want to sincerely thank all of you who have worked with us on building CoLang2020, and hope to be able to continue to collaborate in the future. Updated 3/18/20.

The Institute on Collaborative Language Research in 2020 (CoLang 2020) will be hosted by the University of Montana in collaboration with Chief Dull Knife College.

CoLang is an international institute for language activists, teachers, linguists and students from language communities and academia to obtain hands-on skills in language documentation and revitalization as practiced in collaborative contexts as well as in technology and basic linguistics in community-based research contexts. The Institute creates multi-dimensional networks among community language workers, teachers, researchers, and students.
