The Twinning Project Engaged humanities in Europe: Capacity building for participatory research in linguistic-cultural heritage (ENGHUM) aims at strengthening scientific and innovation capacity as well as social impact of the Faculty of "Artes Liberales" of the University of Warsaw in the field of participatory action research in linguistic-cultural heritage and revitalization of endangered languages. It is carried out through a set of knowledge transfer, training, promotion, coordination and support activities with the Department of Linguistics of the School of Oriental and African Studies, University of London (SOAS) and Leiden University’s Centre for Linguistics (Faculty of Humanities) and Department of Archaeological Heritage (Faculty of Archaeology). The assumptions behind the project reflect the need for a holistic and problem-oriented (not disciplinary-limited) approach to both theoretical and applied issues in the study of language, culture and society. An essential goal also includes finding solutions for bridging collaboration and knowledge-transfer gaps between academics, members of local communities/ethnic minorities and non-academic organizations.
This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 692199.
