Presented by Lindsay Morcom, associate professor and Canada Research Chair in Language Revitalization and Decolonizing Education, Queen's University (Canada).
This virtual talk will give an overview of the Indigenous languages of Turtle Island, and about the need for language revitalization. Morcom will then examine how language revitalization can be done in urban contexts, and why urban language revitalization is so important.
This program is sponsored by the Clarke Forum for Contemporary Issues and co-sponsored by the departments of English, American studies, Middle East studies, and Latin American, Latinx & Caribbean studies and anthropology. This program was initiated by the Clarke Forum's student project managers.
