Submitted by Joyce Parvi on

Andrew Hedding, who has been an Acting Assistant Professor in Linguistics during the 2022-23 academic year, has recently been hired as an Assistant Professor. Hedding is a theoretical syntactician with a particular interest in information structure.  For some years he has been researching the linguistic structures of San Martín Peras Mixtec, working directly with speakers in Mexico as well as with members of the diaspora community in California.

Associate Dean for the Humanities Brian Reed notes that “Hedding will add to our developing strength in the College of Arts and Sciences in the study of Indigenous languages and cultures. He will also fill a long-term and large gap in our Linguistics curriculum.”
