The Department of English and Linguistics is happy to announce that Prof Michael Marlo joined us on 5th January 2016. Prof Marlo is a Fulbright scholar from the Department of English, University of Missouri ,United States of America. He is running a research project entitled: Structure and Tone in Luyia. He is also contributing to the training of students in the documentation and description of understudied African languages in an effort to combat language endangerment. He is teaching research methods and phonology both at undergraduate and postgraduate levels. He has already presented a seminar paper at the Department entitled: Combating Language Endangerment through Linguistic Documentation. It was very well received.
I would encourage all of us, staff and students alike, to tap into his wealth of experience. He leaves at the beginning of June 2016.
