The comparative study of recent indigenous language revitalization projects such as Maori, Hawaiian, and Rapa Nui (Easter Island, Chile) offers a useful opportunity for better understanding processes of indigenous identity formation and citizenship in local, national, and global communities.
The talk will explore the ways in which the success of language revitalization projects can be linked to the abilities of strong movements to work with and mobilize resources from national and/or transnational entities that they had before approached with criticism or distrust as well as their ability to legitimize and achieve a critical mass of participation for their projects within the indigenous communities in ways that motivate individual speakers and families to invest to change the linguistic ecology of the community.
Lecturer Miki Makihara has been interested in the use and conception of language and how these relate to other aspects of social life, and in particular, to social identity, intergroup relations, and political and economic changes. Research combines formal linguistic analysis and interpretive ethnography.
