Creole Language Workshop

FIU's International Creole Language Workshop Series provided a forum for creolists to come together with teachers, school administrators, language planners, and university faculty from all over the world. These workshops addressed the many issues surrounding creole language use in an urban setting with particular emphasis on creole languages in the educational system.

The Creole Language Workshops were begun in 1994 and were held for five years. The Fifth International Creole Language Workshop was held at Florida International University, Biscayne Bay Campus, in March 30-April 1, 2000. The theme was How the past can improve the future: Creole languages in the new millennium.
