Martha Bigelow gives plenary address in Melbourne, Australia

martha and howard 2.jpgMartha Bigelow, associate professor in the second languages and cultures program (Department of Curriculum and Instruction) recently gave a plenary address at the Research Centre for Linguistic Typology (RCLT) at La Trobe University in Melbourne, Australia. The workshop was called "Dialogue with Diversity: Linguistic fieldwork in urban settings." The RCLT researchers document endangered languages around the world and are in the process of learning to do linguistic fieldwork in local urban settings such as Melbourne and Sydney, where there are immigrants who speak many of the endangered languages typically documented abroad.

Here Martha is pictured with Dr. Howard Nicholas from La Trobe University.
