Katelin Belliveau has returned to Ottawa

 

Our 2020 Melba Lent Woeflé Award winner, Katelin Belliveau, has returned to Ottawa and is working toward an M.A. in journalism at Carleton University. She says her thesis will be a 30-minute podcast about language death in Canada – specifically about the case of the French Acadian dialect, Chiac. That is Katelin’s mother tongue and she adds that “it has a riveting history and ongoing battle to be legitimized and preserved in a shrinking population and an ever changing landscape of languages.”
