Our collaborator, Professor Justyna Olko of the University of Warsaw, Poland, has just received news that she is the recipient of a grant for 1.3 million Euros for her “Nahua Culture Contact” project.  Her work dovetails with the online Nahuatl dictionary and the Early Nahuatl Library at WHP.  This grant will also support our continued collaboration with the Instituto de Docencia e Investigación en Etnología, Zacatecas (IDIEZ), which works with Nahuatl language preservation and revitalization.  The IDIEZ director, John Sullivan, is a co-editor of our open-access Nahuatl dictionary.  We are so thrilled that all this work is being honored by the most prestigious grant a scholar can obtain in Europe. Here’s a link to a news piece in Polish about the ERC award.
