17 November 2017
Professor Miriam Meyerhoff from the School of Linguistics and Applied Language Studies has been made a fellow of the Royal Society Te Apārangi.
Fellows have to be nominated and the nominations are then assessed against a number of criteria by a discipline-based evaluation panel. Victoria academics make up five of the 16 new fellows.
Becoming a fellow has special significance for Professor Meyerhoff, who as a child spent many school holidays in the Royal Society offices while her mother, Mary Cresswell, was editor of the Journal of the Royal Society.
"I'm pretty chuffed. There is another family connection as my stepfather, Max Cresswell, is also a Fellow," Professor Meyerhoff says.
Professor Meyerhoff’s current research focuses on language variation and change, language contact, Vanuatu languages, and language and gender. Read more here: https://www.victoria.ac.nz/lals/about/staff/miriam-meyerhoff
