Autumn Quarter – Southern Lushootseed Language Table
Every Thursday 4:30-6:00 PM Thomson Hall Room 335
The Southern Lushootseed Language Table is back for Autumn quarter 2019! The table is open to all, including members of the community, you don’t have to be affiliated with the UW to attend. Anyone can drop in for the language table any time. No previous experience necessary. You can come for just one meeting or every week through the end of the quarter. You’ll leave with basic pronunciation principles, useful everyday phrases, and some new friends.
Are you a graduate student who wants to communicate your capstone, research, or pedagogy to a wider audience? Would you like to get feedback about your presentation style from a large group of smart, supportive, and interdisciplinary people? Like a famous comedian, would you like to test your material in front of a big audience and see if it works?
If your answers are “Yes! Yes! YES!” then Graduate Core Programs and the UW Libraries invite you to apply for Scholars’ Studio. Scholars’ Studio is a fun, low stakes, supportive event in which you present your research in a vivid 5-minute lightning talk to 60-100 UW community members.
Funding: Center for American Indian and Indigenous Studies Travel and Research Grant
Priority Deadline: Applications due October 25, 2019 at midnight, PST.
The Center for American Indian and Indigenous Studies (CAIIS) aims to promote knowledge production and sharing in American Indian and Indigenous Studies across the three UW campuses, as well as with surrounding Native and Indigenous communities. CAIIS awards small grants (up to $2,000) to help offset costs associated with conference, research, networking, and community outreach travel. Building on their traditional ways of gathering, story telling, and relationship building as meaningful opportunities, the CAIIS invites faculty, staff, community research partners, and students at all levels to apply for these funds. Whether you’re visiting with elders, participating in cultural activities, or attending a conference, having a well-established community is important to your success at the University and beyond.
