Congratulations to ROMS Associate Professor, Bruno Estigarribia, who has received a 2018 NEH Fellowship for his project titled “Language and Indigeneity in a Global World: Guarani Spaces and Linguistic Decolonization in Paraguay”.

He will be doing fieldwork in Argentina and Paraguay to document current Guarani language practices and create the first digital archive of contemporary Guarani. Transcripts, audio, and video from interactional observation and sociolinguistic interviews will be hosted (with consultants’ consent) in a database that will be the first publicly accessible, fully searchable archive of any of the Guarani languages.
