Book Presentation/Lecture: “Oralidades”
February 28 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Presented by: Dr. Armando Muyolema, Quechua Instructor, UW-Madison, AND Ecuadorian sociolinguist and educator
About the presentation: The relationship between orality and writing has been a subject of constant debate in the Andean region and beyond. In the Ecuadorian context, this debate has gained special relevance since the 80s of the 20th century, motivated above all by the interest in standardizing the Quichua language for purposes of expanding bilingual education and literacy processes. The contributions that are collected in the Oralidades y escrituras kichwas book is a balance of the discussions and concrete actions of the last decades, updating the debates and proposing new research and action questions. The presentation event will tell you how this editorial project came to light and invite people to read the book.
