2019 Lynton Colloquium Speakers


2018 Lynton Award Winner: Dr. Brook Danielle Lillehaugen
Brook Danielle Lillehaugen (Haverford College) is a linguist who specializes in indigenous languages of Mexico. She received her Ph.D. in linguistics in 2006 from the University of California, Los Angeles and has been learning from Zapotec speakers since 1999. Lillehaugen’s research profile includes technical grammatical description as well as collaborative language documentation and revitalization projects. She publishes on the grammar of Zapotec languages in both their modern and historical forms. She has found combining linguistic fieldwork with tools from the digital humanities to be a productive way to collaborate with both Zapotec speaking communities and undergraduate students. She is co-director of Ticha, a digital text explorer for Colonial Zapotec texts and leads several teams in developing online Talking Dictionaries for Zapotec languages. She recently collaborated with Haverford students and Zapotec language activists to create a short, multi-lingual documentary film.

Dr. Felipe H. Lopez
Dr. Felipe H. Lopez is originally from the Zapotec town of San Lucas Quiaviní, Oaxaca. At the age of 16, he migrated to Los Angeles, California, speaking no English and little Spanish. He earned his Ph.D. from UCLA in 2007. He has taught Zapotec language classes, co-authored a trilingual Zapotec-Spanish-English dictionary (Munro & Lopez et al. 1999), and a Zapotec language textbook (Munro et al. 2008). In addition, he is a Zapotec writer. He was awarded the 2017 Premios CaSa prize and his poetry can be found in the Latin American Literary Review, The Acentos Review, and Latin American Literature Today.


Sabea Evans
Sabea Evans is a recent alumna of Haverford College from Bronx, NY. She has a B.A. in Linguistics, minored in Religion and concentrated in Africana Studies. Sabea’s senior thesis was on racialized language ideologies of speakers of Dagbani, a non-dominant indigenous language, and mother-tongue education in Dalun, Ghana. She’s currently a Policy & Communications Fellow at the Center for Hunger-Free Communities through participation in Haverford College’s post-bac fellowship program within their Center for Peace & Global Citizenship. Sabea is a budding community advocate interested in applying her investment in diversity, access, inclusion, and engagement work to higher education contexts. Her interests also include ethical ethnography, language diversity and activism, and ethnolinguistic identity and practice. She thrives in collaborative spaces and aspires to co-facilitate projects that amplify black, brown, and indigenous voices.




About the Ernest A. Lynton Award

Sponsored by the Swearer Center at Brown University in partnership with the Coalition of Urban and Metropolitan Universities (CUMU), the annual Ernest A. Lynton Award for the Scholarship of Engagement for Early Career Faculty recognizes a full-time faculty member who is pre-tenure at tenure-granting campuses or early career (i.e., within the first six years) at campuses with long-term contracts,* and who connects their teaching, research and service to community engagement.

The Lynton Award emphasizes community-engaged scholarly work across faculty roles. The scholarship of engagement represents an integrated view of faculty roles in which teaching, research/creative activity and service overlap and are mutually reinforcing, is characterized by scholarly work tied to a faculty member's academic expertise, is of benefit to the external community, is visible and shared with community stakeholders and reflects the mission of the institution. Community engagement is defined by relationships between those in the university and those outside the university that are grounded in the qualities of reciprocity, mutual respect, shared authority and co-creation of goals and outcomes. Such relationships are by their very nature trans-disciplinary (knowledge transcending the disciplines and the college or university) and asset-based (where the strengths, skills and knowledges of those in the community are validated and legitimized).

The Swearer Center is accepting nominations for the 2019 Lynton Award now through June 1st.
