The Linguistic Society of America Recognizes the Work of Princeton’s Laura Kalin

Laura Kalin, an associate professor of linguistics at Princeton University in New Jersey, has received the 2024 Early Career Award from the Linguistic Society of America. 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. Dr. Kalin and her colleagues built the new undergraduate curriculum that allows students to pursue an independent major in linguistics or a minor.

“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,” Dr. Kalin said.

Dr. Kalin joined the faculty at Princeton in 2016. Her research focuses on the syntax and morphology of understudied (and often endangered) languages with a current focus on a group of Neo-Aramaic languages originally spoken in Kurdish areas of Iraq, Iran, Syria, and Türkiye.

Dr. Kalin holds a Ph.D. from the University of California, Los Angeles.
