Languages students hired as undergraduate research assistants through research grant awarded to Professor John Schwieter

Professor John W. Schwieter has been awarded a book preparation grant through the Office of Research Services’ SSHRC Institutional Grant program. The $2,000 grant will fund two Bachelor of Arts in Languages students as research assistants to work on the project, “The Handbook of Translation and Cognition” (Wiley-Blackwell, 2017).

The handbook is co-edited by Schwieter and Aline Ferreira and will appear in the Blackwell Handbooks in Linguistics Series. It features 30 contributions from international experts based at and/or affiliated with institutions and research centres in 17 countries including: Australia, Austria, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, Denmark, England, Finland, Germany, Japan, Ireland, Norway, Poland, Spain, South Africa, Switzerland, and the United States.

The two fourth-year research assistants are:

  • Andrea Hadland, who holds a President’s Gold Scholarship at Laurier. Hadland has taught tutorials for LL223 and plans on continuing on to teacher’s college after completing her bachelor's degree.
  • Samantha Graham, who is considering continuing her education at the graduate level in linguistics and language studies.
