SSILA hosts a special symposium in honor of Emmon Bach

Pat Shaw, past president of SSILA, writes:

Our esteemed and cherished colleague, Emmon Bach, was serving as elected President of the Society for the Study of the Indigenous Languages of the Americas (SSILA) at the time of his sudden passing in November 2014. In honour of his memory and of his many diverse contributions to scholarship based on his extensive work with the Native languages of North America and with Native communities engaged in language documentation, conservation, and revitalization, SSILA is hosting a special symposium at the 2016 SSILA/LSA annual meetings to be held January 7-10 in Washington, DC.

More details forthcoming in the meeting program.
