Meeting Description: After the success of DLAP-1 hosted by the Department of Linguistics at The University of Hong Kong in April 2016, we are happy to announce the 2nd Documentary Linguistics: Asian Perspectives event, to be held at The University of Hong Kong, 25-27 May 2017.

We will again combine workshops with conference presentations. The theme for DLAP-2 will be ‘Transformations and Sustainability’. The aim is to look at how documentary linguistics (a) impacts communities and society, in terms of the social transformation that it can bring about; (b) inspires students and scholars, in terms of the role it plays in training and the advancement of the language sciences; and (c) shapes individual and institutional horizons, creating future opportunities for minority voices.

As with DLAP-1, a number of travel grants will be made available to individuals facing financial challenges who wish to attend the workshop and the symposium.
