54th International Congress of Americanists: Building Dialogues in the Americas

Americanist scholarship is marked by a vibrant diversity of ontological, epistemological, and methodological questions. Since its inception, Americanists have gathered at ICA meetings to discuss empirical and normative scholarship, liberal and conservative politics, positivist and post-positivist perspectives, as well as activists and theoretical approaches, among other things. While these specializations often have been artificially separated, we aim to facilitate sharing of insights, questions, methods and viewpoints that could foster dynamic dialogues.

Original Languages of the American Continent

The last two or three decades have seen a growing focus on endangered languages, and much initiative has been undertaken with the purpose of documenting languages – before it is too late.

The conference will feature five keynote speakers who have all worked for years in this area, each with their individual expertise and background. Netindis members as well as others who have worked with Amerindian languages and with language education are invited to participate in the conference and to present individual papers related to the topic.
