|FILLM Podcast: Professor Anvita Abbi|
| 5.2.2015 |
Last September, FILLM published its first ever podcast, an enganging talk by Dr. Sukrita Paul Kumar (University of Delhi) on "Multiculturalism and Multilingualism in India".
Back then, we also said Dr. Kumar's talk was the first of three planned podcasts to be published in the run-up to the next FILLM Congress in New Delhi in March 2017. We are now very pleased to present you with the second podcast in the series.
For our second podcast, we are honoured to present Professor Anvita Abbi. Professor Abbi is a specialist on minority languages, especially in South Asia. She is Director of the Centre for Oral and Tribal Literature at the Sahitya Akademi (Academy of Letters) in New Delhi, India and a recent recipient of the prestigious Padma Shri Award (2013) and the Linguist Society of America's Kenneth Hale Award (2015). For more information on Professor Abbi, please see also her Wikipedia page.
For the FILLM Podcast, Professor Abbi's "Vanishing Voices: What Happens When Language Dies" addresses the social and cultural implications of language death.
