Presentations and Talks

I have been involved in various conferences, training courses, workshops, and teaching programmes dealing with principles and practices in language documentation, linguistic fieldwork, and language revitalisation over many years. Most of these are aimed at knowledge and skills development for early career researchers (MA, PhD students and post-doctoral researchers). For many presentations the materials (PDFs of Powerpoint slides and/or handouts) are available for viewing and download under a creative commons licence CC-BY-NC (Attribution-NonCommercial). The following list for 2022 is in chronological order. Links to previous years are below.
