Keith Dede awarded two fellowships

April 19, 2009

Keith Dede, associate professor of Chinese Language and Literature, has been awarded two research fellowships in support of his sabbatical project, “Contact and Change in the Chinese Dialects of Qinghai”; one is a Fulbright Scholar grant from the Council for International Exchange of Scholars and the second is a grant from the U.S. Department of Education’s Fulbright-Hays Faculty Research Abroad Program. Dr. Dede will spend time in China gathering naturalistic speech samples from native speakers of Qinghai Chinese dialects, train local researchers in language-gathering and documentation techniques, and work with local scholars. His work will allow for the testing of theories of language evolution. (April 2009)
