Doyle Calhoun

Doyle Calhoun (°1993) recently obtained a Bachelor’s degree in General Linguistics and French Literature (May 2016 – Boston College). He also studied scholarly editing and literary criticism at Boston University’s Editorial Institute. He is the recipient of a (2016–17) Fulbright research grant to Belgium. The grant was awarded for the research project “Digitizing and contextualizing French missionary analyses of African languages, c. 1850–1920”, which can be explored in its early stages here (see also the interview here). This past spring, he was awarded the Vivian Law Prize and the Salmon–Verburg Memorial Fund by the Henry Sweet Society for the History of Linguistic Ideas.
