All the best!
The FieldLing organizers


FieldLing, the International School in Linguistic Fieldwork, is at present the only regular intensive training program in France preparing students to study theories and methods for language description through fieldwork.  FieldLing introduces students to the complexity of scientific and ethical issues relevant to linguistic fieldwork, and to the technological tools that facilitate it. An assiduity attestation will be delivered at the end of the school.

In 2022, FieldLing will be organised by four laboratories. Three of them are attached to Labex EFL: LLACAN (UMR 8135, INALCO, CNRS), SeDyL (UMR 8202, INALCO, CNRS, IRD), and LACITO (UMR 7107, Sorbonne Nouvelle, INALCO, CNRS). One is attached to the Labex ASLAN: DDL (UMR 5596, LYON 2, CNRS). FieldLing reveived financial support from the Doctoral school of the INALCO (Code EC INALCO: SDLA520b), PARIS 3, the Labex EFL, the SeDyL, and the LLACAN. The preliminary schedule includes training sessions on general linguistics (e.g., morphosyntax and typology), fieldwork preparation (e.g., stimuli and recording), fieldwork itself (practice sessions with native speakers of different languages), and data structuring (e.g., how to write a dictionary or a grammar). Additional information will be uploaded in the incoming months, please connect regularly to follow our latest update.
