The American Research Institute in Turkey (ARIT) is pleased to announce 2018-2019 fellowship programs for students and scholars based in the U.S. and Canada: 

The CLS Program is an intensive overseas language and cultural immersion program for American students enrolled at U.S. colleges and universities. Students spend eight to ten weeks abroad studying one of 14 critical languages. The program includes intensive language instruction and structured cultural enrichment experiences designed to promote rapid language gains.

A combination of environmental change, urbanization, and fewer herders learning the tradition of Camel Coaxing have left the practice in danger of being lost. This led the Mongolian government to petition UNESCO that the coaxing ritual for camels be given a place on the List of Intangible Cultural Heritage in Need of Urgent Safeguarding, The ritual was added to the list in 2015.

This spring, the Center for Languages of the Central Asian Region (CeLCAR) will be hosting the 3rd Conference on Central Asian Languages and Linguistics (ConCALL-3) at Indiana University from March 2-4, 2018.
