For the first time ever, a survey class of Eskimo-Aleut languages of Alaska, Canada, Siberia and Greenland will be offered, with details on dialects, comparative phonology and grammar, reconstructing proto-Eskimo, literacy traditions and prospects for language survival.

In this short podcast, Roy Mitchell explains how the class came to be offered “planet-wide” through his Facebook outreach. It will include speakers and experts from across the polar regions. Check the Facebook link for class details, including a book and readings list.
