Native American Languages at Yale: Past, Present, and Future Online

Four Yale students will join moderator Claire Bowern (Yale Professor of Linguistics) in discussing Native American languages across the country. The panel will discuss language and related topics across the nation and the role of institutions like Yale in the linguistic landscape of North America, including:

  • issues around language activism,

  • language in Native American communities,

  • Native American languages at Yale,

  • and language loss and reclamation.

This panel is tied to Bass Library’s 2020/2021 Model Research Collection curated by Dr. Bowern, Language is Everywhere.
