October 25-28, 2018


The second Symposium on Indigenous Languages and Cultures of Latin America (ILCLA), organized in conjunction with the fourth Symposium on Teaching and Learning Indigenous Languages of Latin America (STLILLA 2018) brings together instructors, practitioners, activists, indigenous leaders, scholars and learners who study indigenous languages and cultures of Latin America and the Caribbean.

This international symposium engages participants in a hemispheric dialogue and also serves as a permanent forum for networking and exchanging ideas, experiences and research on methodological, theoretical, pedagogical, and practical issues from inter and trans-disciplinary perspectives. This forum will enable professionals from around the world to interact with leading experts in the fields of education, language policy and planning, linguistics, cultural studies, ethnomusicology, anthropology, informatics, and other disciplines. Through different venues such as keynotes presentations, panels, round tables, interactive workshops, poster sessions, and technological tool showcases, this symposium will contribute to the teaching and learning, dissemination and preservation, study and advancement of indigenous languages and cultures of the region.

Confirmed keynote speakers include Gaspar Pedro González, Maya author and scholar, and Dan Everett, linguist and Dean of Arts & Sciences at Bentley University.
