2021 Malang Graduate Student Webinar in Linguistics: Language Documentation in Indonesia

2021 Malang Graduate Student Webinar in Linguistics- Language Documentation in Indonesia

Study Programme of Linguistics, Faculty of Cultural Studies Universitas Brawijaya (FCS UB) in collaboration with AIFIS (The American Institute for Indonesian Studies) successfully held the “2021 Malang Graduate Student Webinar in Linguistics” activity to study the field of linguistics on Friday (8/6/2021). On this occasion, “2021 Malang Graduate Student Webinar in Linguistics” brought the theme “Language Documentation in Indonesia and Studies of English Spoken in Indonesia”.

“This online seminar was held with the purpose to serve as a forum for linguistic students in Malang to discuss with linguistic students abroad so that they can share their knowledge and experiences,” said Radha Andhra Swari, one of the UB students who had the opportunity to be a speaker at the webinar.

The online seminar was held through the Zoom Meeting platform from 8 to 11 a.m. and was attended by students from various universities, namely UB, Malang State University (UM), Cornell University, and the University of Hawaii at Manoa. The topic “Language Documentation in Indonesia” was discussed in the first session of the webinar attended by three speakers, namely, Ekarina Winarto (Cornell University), Radha Andhra Swari (UB), and Khairunnisa (the University of Hawaii at Manoa).

“I hope that this online seminar can inspire and motivate students in conducting linguistic research. In the future, hopefully, more linguistic students will be interested in studying regional languages in Indonesia because we, as a young generation, have an important role to play in preserving our rich, unique, and diverse regional languages to avoid language extinction,” said Radha.
