Gabriela Pérez Báez to receive linguistics award

Gabriela Pérez Báez

Nov. 19, 2019 – Several faculty members in the University of Oregon Linguistics Department will be recognized for their work by the Linguistics Society of America in 2020.

Among those to be granted awards is CLLAS affiliated faculty Gabriela Pérez Báez, assistant professor of linguistics. She will receive the Early Career Award, which honors her documentation of Zapotecan languages, her raising awareness of language diversity and for her work to train speakers in North America and Mexico. —Source: Around the O: https://around.uoregon.edu/content/employee-awards-honors-and-accolades-fall-term-2019

“The Early Career Award, established in 2010, recognizes scholars early in their career who have made outstanding contributions to the field of linguistics. This award is bestowed for contributions to the documentation of Zapotecan languages, for raising public awareness of language diversity and endangerment, and for leading efforts to train members of speaker communities in North America and Mexico. The breadth of Dr. Gabriela Pérez Báez’s contributions is remarkable, and, as Curator of Linguistics at the Smithsonian Institution, she served for over eight years as a public face of the field within one of the world’s most important cultural institutions. Her leadership has allowed events such as the National Breath of Life Archival Institutes for Indigenous Languages to thrive, and her forthcoming Isthmus Zapotec dictionary will become a landmark publication.” — From LSA website: https://www.linguisticsociety.org/news/2019/10/08/award-winners-announced
