Vice Chancellor of East West University, Professor Ahmed Shafee gave a
brief presentation in the program and handed over a crest to Dr. Peterson.
The talks were focused on a few core objectives, the most important being how
to provide the students of the Department of English the ideas about endangered languages and how students studying Linguistics sciences can play a vital role in language documentation.
Finally, Dr. Peterson discussed elements of linguistic training that he views as the most essential to producing local linguists who can make lasting contributions to the documentation of Bangladeshi languages.
