Laura Kalin (Linguistics, Humanities Council) has received the 2024 Early Career Award from the Linguistic Society of America (LSA). She was chosen “based on an exceptional record of service, research, teaching, and publication, combined with innovative reformulation of linguistic course offerings for the Program in Linguistics at Princeton University,” according to the award citation. Kalin is associate director of the program.
“We are delighted that Professor Kalin has been honored by the LSA,” said Adam Elga (Philosophy), director of the Program in Linguistics. “We’re grateful for her world class research abilities, teaching that manifests a contagious enthusiasm, and her pivotal role in the continued growth of our course offerings and curriculum.”
Said Kalin: “Receiving the Early Career Award from the LSA is especially meaningful to me because it explicitly recognizes not just my research and my scholarly work, but also the time, effort and dedication I’ve put into the Humanities Council’s Program in Linguistics at Princeton.”
Kalin built the new undergraduate program with colleagues Byron Ahn (Linguistics, Humanities Council) and Florian Lionnet (Linguistics, Humanities Council). The curriculum allows students to pursue an independent major in linguistics or a minor.
