The Foundation for Endangered Languages and The Center for Research and Publication on Arbëresh (QSPA) cordially invite international scholars, institutions, and community members working on the revitalization of endangered languages and their documentation and archiving, to contribute to the International Conference on “Endangered Languages and Diaspora”, which will take place in Tirana, Albania, on 16-19 December, 2021. While this is planned as a face-to-face conference, with a possibility of virtual connection for some papers, contingencies are also planned if the pandemic security in December does not allow physical attendance by scholars and activists. We would then reformulate our program as a virtual conference, and we inform you of the change. Accepted papers will be published by QSPA before the conference and will be ready for distribution during the event. There are plans for another peer reviewed publication of selected papers
