LSA Award for Mary Ann Metallic

Mary Ann Metallic (Listuguj Education Directorate), a collaborator and key member of McGill’s Mi’gmaq Research Partnership, has just been honoured as the first recipient of the Linguistic Society of America’s “Excellence in Community Linguistics Award,” recently announced here. The LSA notes:

Mary Ann Metallic has done exemplary work to revitalize the Mi’gmaq language in her home community of Listuguj, Quebec. Her infectious passion for Mi’gmaq has led to the development of a successful teaching program, and her work with linguists has resulted in significant contributions to language documentation and linguistic theory.

Mary Ann will travel, together with her daughter Janine Metallic (McGill) to the LSA Annual Meeting in Minneapolis this January to receive the award in person. Congratulations Mary Ann!
