Endangered Alphabets  

Perhaps a third of the world’s writing systems are in imminent danger of extinction. If this happens, everything written in those scripts–historical documents, poems, legal documents, letters, sacred texts–will become incomprehensible to the very culture that created them. Tim Brookes, founder of the Endangered Alphabets Project, will speak on how a writing system may become endangered and what can be done to revive it, including his own current project to co-create word games that help children from indigenous and minority cultures learn their own traditional forms of writing.
