Visiting Assistant Professor of Religious Studies Meredith Moss was recently awarded the Phillips Fund Grant for Native American Research for her project titled “Grassroots Language Revitalization in the Mohawk Valley.”
With this award, Moss will continue her research with local Mohawk language advocates, teachers and learners. Her work will contribute to the body of research on language variation in communities undergoing language shift.
This is the second time Moss has received the American Philosophical Society (APS) grant. In 2012, the grant supported her research on Navajo language revitalization.
According to the APS website, the Phillips Fund Grants are provided “for research in Native American linguistics, ethnohistory, and the history of studies of Native Americans, in the continental United States and Canada.”
