Speaker: Adam Roth Singerman, Harvard University
Adam Singerman received his PhD in Linguistics from the University of Chicago in 2018. His dissertation and subsequent research have focused on the grammar of Tuparí, an Indigenous language spoken by between 350 and 400 people in the Brazilian state of Rondônia. He is presently a Lecturer in the Department of Linguistics at Harvard. Once it is possible to resume on-site fieldwork in Rondônia, he intends to research the history of multilingual contact between the Tuparí and the neighboring peoples of southern Rondônia.
Presented in collaboration with Native Cultures of the Americas, Mahindra Humanities Center at Harvard
