Kūpinaʻi Language Center launches with guest presentation from Dr. Kalehua Krug

The Department of Linguistics is pleased to announce the soft launching of the Kūpinaʻi Language Center (Moore Hall 151), which took place on April 23, 2024. The event was the first installment of the Lauhoe Speaker Series, funded by the Office of Student Equity, Excellence and Diversity (SEED), featuring a lecture by Dr. Kalehua Krug (Ka Waihona o Ka Naʻauao PCS).

Dr. Krug spoke about “Healing Hawaiʻi’s Societal and Ecological Landscape Through the Cultural Ideology of ʻŌlelo Hawaiʻi.”

The Kūpinaʻi Language Center, under the direction of Professor Andrew Cheng, is a space for sociolinguistics, phonetics, and language documentation research, and more. The space features a sound booth, a living-room style area, a small kitchenette, works stations, and more. It is the newest addition to the Language Analysis and Experimentation Laboratories, and is intended to be a space for making comfortable, high-quality recordings for linguistics research.
