McGill Linguistics Fieldwork Lab alumna Gretchen McCulloch‘s new book, Because Internet: Understanding the New Rules of Language, was published with rave reviews and made the New York Times Best Sellers list last week. Before Gretchen became a professional internet linguist, she wrote her 2013 McGill MA thesis on Mi’gmaq preverbs. Nice work Gretchen!

Last May McGill hosted a Symposium on the Role of the University in Supporting Indigenous Languages. The symposium was organized in response to the Final Report of the Provost’s Task Force on Indigenous Studies and Indigenous Education, which called on McGill to strengthen support of Indigenous languages.
The resulting Vision Paper has now been published online, and is available on the symposium webpage here.
