Workshop in Nahuatl

On October 6 and 7 of 2016, as part of the ENGHUM project we will carry out a workshop for native speakers of Nahuatl (including writers, students, researchers, teachers and activists) as well as participants from the Faculty of „Artes Liberales” of the University of Warsaw.Over thirty native speakers of the language will meet at Mexico’s National Archives to read and discuss manuscripts written by their ancestors during the country’s colonial period, as well as explore ways to strengthen and develop teaching, research and revitalization activities related to their language and culture. The discussions will be held entirely in Nahuatl, highlighting both the mutual inteligibility of each participant’s variant, as well as the capacity of the language to serve as a tool for advanced academic work.
