Elizabeth Frances Goodrich
Current PhD student
Department of Linguistics

I am a doctoral student in the Department of Linguistics with a BA in Linguistics from the University of California, Berkeley. My research interests are in language revitalization and documentation, with an emphasis on community-inclusive documentation methods and the importance of cultural revitalization and revalorization in tandem with language work. I am especially interested in indigenous languages of what are now the Americas, in particular those of Mexico and the Western U.S. I am also interested in language contact and shifting language ideologies in both diachronic work and in colonial and “post-colonial” contexts. I have worked most extensively in the past with the Yurok language of the Yurok tribe of Humboldt, CA and in the Peruvian Amazon Basin with the Máíjùnà people.
