CONFERENCE NOW TO BE HELD ONLINE

UPDATE: Due to the global coronavirus situation, this year’s FEL conference will take place virtually via Microsoft Teams. We aim to cater for three different time-zone clusters: 1) the Americas, 2) Africa, Europe, and the Middle East, and 3) Asia and the Pacific. Thus, participants should be able to present and attend talks at a convenient time regardless of their location. Information about the conferencing tool, registration and other practicalities will be added to the conference website in due course. We will not be charging a conference fee but encourage participants to make a donation to FEL instead.

About the conference

The theme of this year’s FEL conference is teaching and learning materials (including primers, grammars, dictionaries, textbooks, websites, language documentation and other audiovisual material, apps, etc.) for, in, and about endangered languages. We would like to invite presentations that focus on the types of pedagogical resources that are appropriate for endangered language situations (including the teaching and learning of speaking, listening, reading, and writing skills, as relevant), and the roles they can play in the support for and revitalization of endangered languages. Presentations could also explore how such resources can contribute to the status and profile of a language, and what practical and pedagogical solutions and resources work best for first, heritage, and second language speakers and learners.
