Phase 1: Cultural innovation and transmission: Project 031
Linguistic Transmission in Indigneous Siberia

Peter Jordan (Department of Archaeology, University of Aberdeen )
Andrei Filtchenko (Tomsk State Pedagogical University)


PROJECT FUNDING: British Academy

PROJECT ABSTRACT:
This British Academy supported collaboration will involve CEACB, Sheffield University and Tomsk State Pedagogical University, Laboratory of Indigenous Languages of Siberia. We aim to investigate dialectology amongst a suite of West Siberian indigenous communities in order to explore patterns and processes of linguistic interaction and exchange, which will generate insights into local culture history. The project will run in tandem with Project 30, which is exploring cultural transmission in the same geographic region.
