On Gov­er­nors Island, the Endan­gered Lan­guage Alliance will be host­ing a hybrid residency/​event/​exhibit space fea­tur­ing two exhibits: The Migra­tion Codex by Cinthya San­tos-Briones, and Moth­er Tongues: Endan­gered Lan­guages in NYC and Beyond by Yuri Marder in col­lab­o­ra­tion with ELA, with videog­ra­phy by Don­net­ta Bish­op-John­son. The res­i­den­cy will be a space for lin­guists, lan­guage activists, speak­ers, and oth­ers doing lan­guage-relat­ed work. The space will be high­light­ing glob­al lin­guis­tic diver­si­ty as reflect­ed in the hyper­local city, and planned com­po­nents include pho­tog­ra­phy, video, audio, and ELA’s new dig­i­tal Lan­guages of New York City map.

Found­ed in 2010, the Endan­gered Lan­guage Alliance (ELA) is a non-prof­it ded­i­cat­ed to doc­u­ment­ing and sup­port­ing lin­guis­tic diver­si­ty and endan­gered lan­guages in New York City and beyond. ELA’s unique net­work of researchers, activists, and stu­dents doc­u­ments the speech, sto­ries, and songs of immi­grant, refugee, and dias­po­ra com­mu­ni­ties, bring­ing it to a wider audi­ence. ELA’s work has been rec­og­nized by The New York Times, the BBC, NPR, CNN, and The New Yorker.
