Congratulations to Prof. Erik Anonby for receiving the Marston LaFrance Fellowship, FASS’s senior research achievement award.

Anonby will use the time awarded by the fellowship to move scholarship and public discourses forward through the completion of a first benchmark map of the languages of Iran.

“For all Iranians, this map provides an opportunity to showcase the country’s linguistic heritage, and for the first time, members of minority language communities that account for over half of the country’s population will see themselves represented in a way that accounts for their extent and diversity.”
