“The Real California Gold”: Indigenous & Immigrant Heritage Languages of California

For many community and university language programs, heritage language learners have become a primary demographic group, especially in California. This conference seeks to clarify the importance of both indigenous and immigrant heritage languages for a better understanding of cultural diversity within the state of California. What are local communities doing to keep endangered languages alive? What kind of community organizations and events are supportive of such endeavors? What are scholars within the UC system doing in relation to these matters? This conference brings U.S. and international scholars together with UC faculty and graduate students who are involved in community outreach, research on heritage and endangered languages, and second language acquisition.

This event is sponsored by UC Davis Second Language Acquisition Institute, with additional funding support from the following: UC Consortium for Language Learning & Teaching, UC California Studies Consortium, UC Humanities Research Institute, UC Davis Humanities Institute California Cultures Initiative, UC Davis Native American Language Center, Yocha Dehe Endowed Chair in California Indian Studies
