Meeting Description: The First International Conference on Revitalization of Indigenous and Minoritized Languages will take place April 19-21 2017 in Barcelona, Spain.

The conference is sponsored by Universitat de Barcelona, Universitat de Vic-Universitat Central de Catalunya, and Indiana University-Bloomington.

The mission of the conference is to bring together instructors, practitioners, activists, indigenous leaders, scholars and learners who speak and study these languages. This international conference includes research, pedagogy and practice about the diverse languages and cultures of Indigenous and minoritized populations worldwide. The conference engages participants in a global dialogue and also serves as a forum for networking and exchanging ideas, experiences and research on language revitalization issues from interdisciplinary perspectives. In other words, its mission is to exchange different ideas and experiences that will transcend the academy walls and find space in the larger world community by giving all the participants an opening to share their multiple ways of being, seeing, knowing and learning.
