Dr. Xenos will look at language demography as a field of study globally, and then some of the largest (and most language diverse) Southeast Asian countries with particular attention to the Phililppines. He will review the drivers of renewed interest in language distributions, the kinds of census and other data that can support language demography, the main lines of research appearing in the literature, and his own ongoing research in the field of demography. The underlying intention is to turn attention to language data in national censuses, which go largely used.
