Language Planning at the Cultural Learning Institute.
Rubin, Joan
Language Planning Newsletter, v2 n1 p1, 4 Feb 1976
This article discusses language planning activities at the East-West Culture Learning Institute in Hawaii. Activities have been planned to facilitate and orient the use of the language planning approach by practitioners who have increasingly focused on the relation of development and modernization to language, and need to understand how language problems relate to a broader socio-cultural context. The first area of activity concerns the development of an information newtowk, including the publication of a quarterly Language Planning Newsletter, the preparation of an annotated bibliography on language planning, and the development of language planning agencies. Another area involves research in language planning theory and language theory, and in approaches to national language teaching. A third area concerns itself with organizing workshops on such topics as indigenous and national theories of language, the application of sociolinguistic theory to actual language planning problems, and language and the law. In a fourth area, courses, seminars, colloquia and training workshops are being prepared for the 1977 Summer Linguistic Institute to be held in Hawaii. A final activity concerns lectures given to professional participants in the Culture Learning Institute. (CLK)
