Welcome to VLACH!


The commission "Vanishing Languages and Cultural Heritage" (VLACH) was founded in September 2016 to contribute with scientific expertise and analysis to the documentation and visibility of the cultural and linguistic diversity in different parts of the world. With different activities and projects we try to protect cultural heritage, also in terms of public recognition and revitalization, and including representatives from the speaker communities. Members, project leaders and staff hope for a larger contribution, and a contribution not just to the examination of individual disappearing languages and cultures, but also positive effects on the communities, in particular more acceptance of academic engagement and greater respect for the threatened, immaterial cultural heritage.

Main goal of the commission is to find out which cultures and linguistic varieties are particularly threatened, to analyze the factors that lead to this threat and the effects of culture loss and language shift on the community. One of the measures taken at the ÖAW is the construction of an online platform for the publication of multimedia field research materials.
