Daisy Rosenblum is an Assistant Professor in the First Nations and Endangered Languages Program and the Department of Anthropology. She specializes in the multi-modal documentation and description of indigenous languages of North America, with an emphasis on methods, partnerships, and products that contribute to community-based language revitalization. She currently works with speakers of Kʷak̓ʷala, a Wakashan language of British Columbia, to record narrative, conversation, and other types of spontaneous speech for today’s and tomorrow’s learners and teachers of the language. These recordings form an annotated corpus of spontaneous speech in two dialects, archived locally and at the Endangered Language Archive at SOAS.
