Talking Dictionaries and Language Advocacy: On this special episode of #CompactNationPod, join Globalsl co-founder and executive director of the Center for Peace and Global Citizenship at Haverford College, Eric Hartman, as he uncovers some exciting community work taking place internationally. Learn about the work that’s going on to revitalize Zapotec, a language native to Mexico that has been rapidly disappearing. Through campus-community partnerships, native speakers, linguists, students, and educators teaching the language have come together to create online talking dictionaries that preserve Zapotec words and dialects and create a foundation for teaching the language to future generations.
