Endangered Languages Exhibit and Lecture

Half of the 6,000 languages spoken in the world are endangered. Celebrating International Mother Language Day, this exhibition will feature books on endangered languages in the CCSU Elihu Burritt Library from February 22 to March 7. A world map provides the locations of these languages and the degree of endangerment. This exhibition is sponsored by CCSU Diversity Grant.
The library will also host an exhibition of Endangered Alphabets, funded by the English Department and a Free iPad. This unique exhibition features carvings of endangered alphabets by the artist, Tim Brookes. Tim Brookes is a Vermont travel writer and artist, who wants to raise awareness of vanishing languages.

Prof. Lee and Tim Brookes will hold a public lecture on Tuesday, February 22, 2011 at 2 p.m. in Special Collections reading room, Burritt library. The event is free and public is cordially invited.

Please contact Dr. Seunghun Lee (seunghunlee@ccsu.edu) for questions or Special Collections at 860 832-2085

  1. I’m more than happy to find this site. I want to to thank you for your time due to
    this wonderful read!! I definitely liked every
    part of it and I have you saved to fav to check out new stuff in your web site.

  2. Right from the way they approach the problem, to the way they
    speak and the assurance that they provide
    and their experience speaks volumes about the company.
    Different kinds of windows need various cleaning mechanisms.
    If you find a company that seems as though it
    only serves high class buildings and multi-story buildings,
    you may think they won’t clean your windows if you only own a
    small building, this isn’t true.
