AHRC-funded project

The IRC's Dr Raquel de Pedro Ricoy is working on an AHRC-funded project with Prof. Rosaleen Howard (Newcastle University) and Dr Luis Andrade (Pontificia Universidad Católica del Perú), in partnership with the Indigenous Languages Office of the Ministry of Culture and the rural development agency SER, researching new state sponsored initiatives to facilitate better communication between the Spanish speaking majority, and speakers of the many Amerindian languages of the Andean highlands and the Amazon basin. In August she spent two weeks in the high jungle town of Quillabamba (near Cusco) where the Ministry of Culture was running a training course for speakers of indigenous languages.
