Documenting and sustaining endangered languages: film screenings
Location: The Royal Anthropological Institute, London, W1T 5BT
Date and time: 6,7 and 8 November, 18.00-20.00
Languages hold thousands of years of history and are vital resources for documenting and understanding the biological and cultural diversity. Today, there are about 6,500 human languages. Half of them are under threat of extinction within fifty to one hundred years. Three films will explore how anthropologists, linguists and community scholars work to address this global problem.
