Amy Dewar is a PhD candidate in Linguistics at the University of Newcastle. Her research involves the documentation and description of the endangered language of Fakamae, spoken on the island of Emae, Vanuatu. As part of her project, Amy will train local language consultants in language documentation, and produce literacy materials in consultation with the community. Digital archiving is a key component of her work. By storing recorded materials with an open access digital archive, these valuable materials will remain accessible to the community, researchers, and the public into the future. Amy achieved First Class Honours in Linguistics in 2017, and has received a number of scholarships and prizes, including the J & E Fenwick prize in Linguistics, and a HDR scholarship for her PhD studies.
