Providing resources and trai­ning in the practices and tools of the digital humanities

CoLang Practicum


2 - 27 July 2012 The Practicum is a four-week apprenticeship in the applica­tion of linguis­tic analysis and language techno­logy to on-site empirical documentation (a.k.a. “field linguis­tics”). Enrollment in the Practicum requires enrollment in the preceding Workshops (18 - 29 June 2012), so as to have an intensive course in docu­mentary best practices before putting these skills to use. We are pleased to announce that the 2012 Practicum languages are Amazigh, Uda, and Cherokee. A particular focus for the 2012 CoLang Practicum is efficient, state-of-the art technology-assisted documentation. A specialist will be available to assist all Practicum participants in workflow and technical aspects of the documentation process. For more information on the practicum languages and instructors, please follow the links below.

**NOTE** The Tlinigit Practicum has been cancelled. Interested applicants may prioritize Practicum language choices on their application. As space is limited, early registration is encouraged, particularly for those with strong Practicum language preferences. We will do our best to give most early applicants their first choices. However, our experience has been that non-first-choices can often be fortuitous: multi-year partnerships at past InFields have emerged from participants ending up in a Practicum that they didn't expect to be in.
