MemberCarolyn Vieira-Martinez

Carolyn Vieira-Martinez completed her PhD at UCLA and was the specialist in Central African History and African Languages at Chapman University until 2015. Her dissertation entitled “Building Kimbundu” combined historical linguistics methodology with GIS technology to study gender, power, and the construction of community through language in 16th century Angola. She has taught computer mediated instruction methods and qualitative data analysis at many universities including the University of San Diego and UT Houston. Her ASILI© African Scholarly Integrated Language Inquiry database system is used by scholars to facilitate the use of Bantu languages as evidence for social history. She speaks unapologetically from a personal Chicana history grounded in Detroit and Los Angeles, pushes the boundaries in developing new technological research methods, and is passionately analytical, theoretical, and collaborative.
