SEMINAR: Linguistics Seminar

Linguistics Seminar : Linguistics, PARADISEC, and the national digital research roadmap Other events...
In this talk I will show how the Pacific and Regional Archive for Digital Sources in Endangered Cultures (PARADISEC) works as a digital platform to support linguistic research, and to provide access to recordings in more than 1100 languages. It is part of the broader project of language documentation, creating citable language records in the course of research. In this context I will discuss recent efforts to articulate HASS digital research requirements that can also benefit Australian linguistics. The Federal Governmant allocates funding ($2.8 billion since 2004) under the National Collaborative Research Infrastructure Strategy (NCRIS). How this funding is distributed is based on consultation every few years using a roadmap (2005, 2008, 2011, 2016). While the main focus of these roadmaps is overwhelmingly science and technology, the most recent roadmaps have included humanities. In both the 2011 and 2016 roadmaps, linguistics research has been represented by PARADISEC.
