The cornerstone project for the National Heritage Language Resource Center is an annual research institute, established to support the Center's principal mission of developing the research base for heritage language education.
In keeping with the theme of prior institutes, the 2013 Institute will also include a series of discussions on ways to explore experimental methodologies in language sciences.
