Last week, Mary Ann Metallic was presented with the LSA’s first Excellence in Community Linguistics Award for her work teaching Mi’gmaq. Mary Ann was nominated by members of the Mi’gmaq Research Partnernship, an ongoing partnership between the Listuguj Education Directorate and linguists at McGill and Concordia. Congratulations Mary Ann!

This summer, three McGill affiliates will be living and working in the Listuguj community: PhD student Yuliya Manyakina, BA student Douglas Gordon, and recent alumna Carol Little. They will continue research on the language and assist with language revitalization efforts.
