ILDP Phase 2 (2007—present)

After the intensive team-based, fieldwork-oriented activities of Phase 1 of the ILDP (see below) ended in 2007, the focus of the project's team members shifted to various individual analytical and writing projects, including several team members finishing their graduate degrees. Products of the ILDP and its team members up to the present can be found on this page.

In 2008 and 2009, Beier and Michael were able to carry out two short periods of fieldwork in San Antonio. Then, from 2010 to 2014, the ILDP had a fieldwork hiatus.

Happily, in the summer of 2014 Beier and Michael were able to resume their research activities and efforts language documentation and revitalization efforts in collaboration with members of the Iquito community of San Antonio. That 2014 summer visit was followed by an intensive year of work, from August 2015 through August 2016, whose research activities were focused on updating and refining the Iquito dictionary database, as well as an extensive collection of texts. Our community-focused activities were focused on resuming community language classes and producing new teaching/learning materials to use in those classes.

In Spring and Summer of 2017, Spring and Summer of 2018, and Spring of 2019, Beier was able to push forward on all of these activites over a series of visits to San Antonio, in collaboration with Michael in each the Summer visits.

Now, from June 2019 through August 2020, Beier and Michael are dedicating a sabbatical year to finalizing as many products of the ILDP as humanly possible. As above, these products will appear on this page as soon as they are ready.

Stay tuned for further developments!

Phase 1 of the Iquito Language Documentation Project (ILDP) was officially launched in 2002 as a collaborative project of the indigenous community of San Antonio de Pintuyacu, in Loreto, Peru; Cabeceras Aid Project, Austin, Texas; and a group of graduate students at The University of Texas at Austin. Phase 1 was funded by Cabeceras Aid Project; the Endangered Language Fund; and the Endangered Languages Documentation Programme of the Hans Rausing Endangered Languages Project, London. Research team members also participated in the ILDP using funding they obtained independently.
