The department is pleased to offer a number of resources to our colleauges.
Coming soon, we will be offering our working papers (prepublication and distribution versions of articles, grants, generals papers, theses, etc.) online.
In 1995, the department became home to the long-running Papers of the Algonquian Conference. While the papers and conference are now being overseen by other universities, we still offer those numbers edited by Dr David Pentland or Dr HC Wolfart and published by managing editor Arden Ogg.
The Algonquian Text Society publishes critical editions of native texts, in the style so familiar to those working on North American indigenous languages, and which have played (and continue to play) a crucial part in linguistic analysis. Publications of the Algonquian Text Society are produced and sold through the University of Manitoba Press.
Published and sold through the department, the Algonquian and Iroquoian Linguistics Memoirs series also presents critical editions of text, including the price-winning volume of Onondaga texts, Concerning the League. In addition to text volumes, this series also publishes grammars and dictionaries of Algonquian and Iroquoian languages, and recently expanded to adjacent language families, withe the publication of Eung-Do Cook's A Grammar of Dëne Sųłiné (Chipewyan).
The Department also sponsors lectures by distinguished scholars, in two series. The Belcourt Lectures are devoted to the indigenous languages and literatures of Rupert's Land; the Stobie lectures celebrate other languages and advances in linguistic thought. In addition, the Department sponsored a lecture as part of the University's Samuel Weiner Lectures. Some of these lecture are available as publications from the department.
