Personlig profil

Information om forskning och undervisning

I am interested in questions related to the revival of heritage languages, experiences of language, language ecology, verbal art and its relations to non-human animals and other beings, domestication, and health in Arctic an sub-Arctic regions.

Since 2008, I have been working with Veps--a Finno-Ugric minority in northwestern Russia. While my initial interest regarded the promotion of Vepsian heritage language, I later augmented my focus to verbal art and relations between human and other-than-human beings as expressed in communicative practices. In particular, I am interested in how environments are co-constructed and construed through linguistic and paralinguistic practices.

At the moment (2020), I am working on the following projects:

1. Shared Breath to deepen our understanding of how experiences of language and the environment are intertwined. This work results in a joint paper for Current Anthropology (2020);

2. The materiality of Indigenous Languages. I am currently co-editing a special issue for Multilingua (2021);

3. Language responsibility in relation to a place. For this, I have co-edited a volume for Fennica Series Anthropologica (June 2020);

4. Indigenous conceptualization of sustainability. This work has fruitfully provided a special issue for COSUST (June 2020);

In 2018, my colleague Dr. Ferguson (Univ. Nevada, Reno) and I established an EASA network on Linguistic Anthropology (ELAN) to advance further discussion on this discipline within the European context.
