Keren Rice featured in U of T News, Nick Welch featured in The Varsity

Two recent articles featuring department members!

First, U of T News has a story on Aboriginal languages where they interview Keren Rice (faculty) on her research, the state of Aboriginal languages in Canada, and the prospects for language revitalization: "Truth and reconciliation live here: At U of T, Indigenous languages speak for themselves"

Second, The Varsity has an article on the new movie Arrival that's about a linguist who tries to figure out an alien language. They interview Nick Welch (faculty), who explains some positives and negatives about the movie's portrayal of linguistics: "Linguistic armament: Deciphering the science of Arrival". This follows a recent piece where U of T News talked to Nick as well as Shayna Gardiner (Ph.D.) about the movie.
