I’m associate professor of English Language and Linguistics at the University of Nordland in Bodø, Norway. For many years I taught general (theoretical) and English linguistics at the University of Tromsø, where I was an associate of CASTL (Center for Advanced Study in Theoretical Linguistics). The focus of my research has been phonology (language sound structure), especially how phonological knowledge interacts with other cognitive systems that subserve language, including the lexicon and syntax. More recently I’ve turned to the ways in which the categories and structures of language presuppose and are influenced by interaction with the physical and social environment, as well as how language, understood as a discrete combinatorial system, shapes the human lifeworld. My latest project applies linguistics to understanding poetic effects.
My research interests cover documentary, descriptive, theoretical, historical and applied linguistics. I have extensive fieldwork experience since 1972 on Australian Aboriginal languages (northern New South Wales, northern South Australia, and north-west Western Australia) and co-authored with David Nathan the first fully page-formatted hypertext dictionary on the World Wide Web, a bilingual dictionary of Gamilaraay (Kamilaroi), northern New South Wales, as well as publishing seven bilingual dictionaries of Aboriginal languages. Since 2011 I have been working with the Dieri Aboriginal Corporation on revitalisation of the Dieri language spoken in South Australia (see Dieri WordPress). Since 1995 I have been carrying out research on Sasak and Samawa, Austronesian languages spoken on Lombok and Sumbawa islands, eastern Indonesia, in collaboration with colleagues at Mataram University and Frankfurt University. My theoretical research is mainly on syntax and focuses on Lexical Functional Grammar, morpho-syntactic typology, computer-aided lexicography and multi-media for endangered languages. I have also published on historical and comparative linguistics, typology, and Aboriginal history and biography. I am currently working with Dr Julia Sallabank and with colleagues at University of Warsaw and Leiden University on an EU Horizon2020 Twinning project called Engaged Humanities, and with Professor Stefanie Pillai, University of Malaya, on a British Academy-funded collaborative research project in Malaysia.
Kelvin Lee is currently completing his PhD at Durham University. His research focuses on the analysis and history of symphonic music in the long nineteenth century, with special interests in the analysis of sonata form, the theory of tonality, the history of music theory, the history of symphonism and global modernism. Situated at the intersection between music theory and the history of ideas, Kelvin’s doctoral thesis scrutinises the analytical implications of dialectical thought to address the impact of chromatic tonality on formal syntax in fin-de-siècle Viennese symphonic repertoire. His recent (or forthcoming) publications include journal articles in Music Analysis and Musurgia, a book chapter in Nikolai Medtner: Music, Aesthetics, and Contexts (Hildesheim: Georg Olms Verlag), and a book review in Notes. Kelvin’s article ‘Rethinking the Symphonic Poem: Dialectical Form, Sequential Dissonances and the Chord of Fate in Schoenberg’s Pelleas und Melisande‘ won the 25th Anniversary Prize from the French music analysis journal Musurgia. He was also awarded the 2018 Theory and Analysis Graduate Student Prize from the Society for Music Analysis. Kelvin has given papers at international conferences including Society for Music Analysis Annual Conferences, Society for Music Theory Annual Meeting, Royal Musical Association Annual Conferences and International Musicological Society Intercongressional Symposium, among others. He is Chair of the Society for Music Analysis Formal Theory Study Group.
Kate Costello is a doctoral candidate at the University of Oxford, specializing in modern Chinese literature and culture. Her doctoral thesis examines bilingualism, language games and word play in modern and contemporary experimental literature. Her research focuses on the relationship between bilingualism and linguistic experimentation, investigating the ways that multiple language competencies are deployed within a literary text. Drawing on the work of a broad range of authors that do not fit neatly into Sinophone, Francophone, or Anglophone canons, her thesis resituates these authors within a framework of interlingual writing. Paying special attention to the creative manipulation of sound, script, and syntax, her dissertation examines the playful, devious and irreverent ways that bilingual competencies manifest themselves in experimental writing. Her research interests extend to film, theatre, and text-based visual arts practices. Kate has a strong interest in linguistics and critical theory, and is co-convener of the Oxford Comparative Criticism and Translation Discussion Group. She has presented papers at major international conferences including the American Comparative Literature Association annual meeting, the Modern Language Association annual convention, the Association for Asian Studies Annual Conference, the Association for Chinese Literature and Comparative Literature biannual conference, and the Cognitive Futures in the Humanities annual conference. Kate is also a literary translator and she has translated short stories, poems and essays by Renshun Jin, Su Xian, and Wa Lan. Her translations have appeared in Washington Square Review, Chinese Arts and Letters, the LA Review of Books China Channel, Paper Republic and Quarterly Asia, as well as the 2018 Seoul International Writer’s Festival Anthology.
