New PacLab @Swarthmore

Announcing my new Pacific Languages & Linguistics Lab at Swarthmore College! The PacLab works on projects related to languages of the Pacific, especially those belonging to the Austronesian family and/or spoken on and around the island of New Guinea. We’re located in Pearson 114, on the Linguistics hallway. Looking forward to big things to come!

ICAL steering committee

At last month’s meeting in Antananarivo, I joined the steering committee of the International Conference on Austronesian Linguistics (ICAL). Most of the conference decisions are made by the local organizers, but I’m happy to pass along suggestions and do what I can to push forward improvements.
