Update from Sali

Tuesday, January 19th, 2010

Another member of our faculty, Salikoko Mufwene, has also been keeping a brisk pace with his scholarly activity of late. His recent publications range from several chapter contributions to new books on the evolution of language, language change and global Englishes to a co-authored peer-reviewed article on “Building social cognitive models of language change” (Trends in Cognitive Sciences, 13: 464-469).

Sali has also given several public lectures (in Montreal and the annual meeting of the American Anthropological Association) and radio interviews on both Radio Canada International (on African contributions to creole language varieties and cultures) and BBC “Word of Mouth” (on creoles and media representation of nonstandard dialects).

Victor Friedman on the go

Tuesday, January 19th, 2010

Victor Friedman has kept himself busy after returning to Chicago last fall after a year in Eastern Europe. His recent activities include a paper on Macedonian dialectology and Balkan dialectology, as well as an article entitled “Turkish Infinitives in Balkan Romani” in the Encyclopedia of Sociolinguistics of the World’s Languages (ed. Martin Ball, Routledge), coming out this year. In November and December, he traveled widely, from Salt Lake City to Boston to the University of Cyprus, speaking variously about Balkan dialects, language policy, and even the topic of violence in Balkan literature.

Victor also received the distinction of the 2009 Annual Award for Outstanding Contributions to Scholarship from the American Association of Teachers of Slavic and East European Languages.

Between January and April 2010, he is scheduled to give papers at the LSA, UC Berkeley (Slavic linguistics), Melbourne (Macedonian and Balkan linguistics), Izmir (Balkan Music), and OSU (Seventeenth Biennial Conference on Balkan and South Slavic Linguistics, Literature and Folklore), so watch for those.
