20-21 November 2018

The sessions dedicated to the FABER Residence, Languages, Worlds and Action, consisted of a first block of presentations by sections: Theories and critiques, Languages and verbal art, and Linguistic Revitalization. The meeting concluded with a joint session of all residents around some of the key issues identified by them after living together during their residency at Faber: a) What are the most effective strategies for linguistic revitalization, b) How can we inspire different groups to promote linguistic diversity, c) What is the role of the verbal arts in supporting linguistic diversity, d) How do constructed (invented) languages interact with digital and popular culture?

The participants of the FABER-Linguapax Residence presented their projects in the framework of # Linguapax2018.
