Ecology & Language Symposium

OSU’s Department of Linguistics and the School of Environment and Natural Resources are sponsoring Ecology & Language, a symposium exploring the interface between ecological and linguistic lines of evidence. The event, the 9th Annual Martin Luther King Day Symposium (MLK9) is being held January 13 and 14 on campus. Please see the program for details. I will be the discussant for a panel ‘The ecology of literacy in Africa – Case studies presented by former literacy workers’. Deborah Morton, Jane Mitsch, and Amanda Miller will speak about literacy programs in Benin, Senegal, and Namibia.
