LANG 240 - Language Activism

Throughout this course, students will explore endangered languages in Northern Canada including the Yukon, Northwest Territories, and Nunavut. They will learn why languages in these regions are endangered and what is being done about it. Students will learn what it means to be a language advocate through examining language policy, funding sources for endangered languages, and community engagement.

Note: The spring 2020 offering of this course will be in a blended format. Students will have a one hour online lecture on Friday from 11 am to noon, and all other course work will be done online via Moodle.
