ELDP Training

In 2016 the Endangered Languages Archive (ELAR) and Endangered Languages Documentation Programme (ELDP) ran a two week capacity building training at Yuxi Normal University, Yunnan China (Oct. 23 – Nov. 7, 2016). Thirty students from all over China came to Yuxi for this training in language documentation theory and practice. The team delivering the training consisted of Jeremy Collins, Sophie Mu, Ross Perlin, Felix Rau, Mandana Seyfeddinipur, and myself.
