    Seminar on language revitalization in northern Pakistan

    The Hugo Valentin Centre will be visited Monday 20 April by linguist Henrik Liljegren, who will give an open seminar 13:00-15:00.

    Seminar

    Primers, kalashnikovs and the fear of small numbers: Ways to successful language revitalization in northern Pakistan

    Dr. Henrik Liljegren

    The Hugo Valentin Room, ENG 4-1020. Time: 13:00-15:00.

    Chair: Dr. Gerald Roche

    – Building on my own experience of linguistic fieldwork in the mountainous region of northern Pakistan and from developing the regional language centre Forum for Language Initiatives, we will discuss the special challenges and opportunities for language and culture documentation and revitalization in this multilingual and volatile context. Some crucial factors will be illustrated and expanded upon, such as research collaboration, community ownership, institutional support and access to resources, inter-community networking and advocacy, growing professionalism and the indispensability of truly practical applications (such as developing culturally appropriate curricula, providing viable educational alternatives, publishing multilingual dictionaries and making accessible local accounts of history) that are appreciated and seen as actual needs by the communities themselves.


    Henrik Liljegren is a Swedish-born linguist who works with the languages of the Hindukush region, many of which are endangered and lesser-documented. Apart from research per se, Henrik Liljegren has been engaged in revitalization efforts (orthography and local literature development, mother-tongue literacy, etc.), mentoring language activists from various Hindukush communities to collect and organize data, and in building networks between local communities and organizations. He was one of the co-founders of the Forum for Language Initiatives, a regional language resource centre initially based in Peshawar, the provincial capital of the Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa province, later relocated to Islamabad.
