Fieldwork Forum (FForum)

Department of Linguistics
University of California, Berkeley

When?Wednesdays 11am - 12:30am
Where?1303 Dwinelle Hall
What?We are a working group dedicated to the critical examination of methodologies in language documentation, description and revitalization, as well as to the linguistic and ethnohistorical analysis that falls out from that work. Our aim is to learn from and ultimately improve upon methods for carrying out more rigorous, insightful and ethical linguistic and cultural fieldwork, and to help researchers implement those methods.
How?Fieldwork Forum is made possible through a Working Group Grant provided by the Townsend Center for the Humanities at the University of California, Berkeley.
Who?FForum is organized by Alison Zerbe and Hannah Sande. We welcome all those interested in linguistic fieldwork, with all levels of experience, including those in other departments.
