Kyan Wayman

My name is Kyan. I have a minor degree in Global Studies and Politics, and I received my BA in Linguistics with a minor in Asian Languages and Cultures from Rutgers University in the USA. I did part of my degree during an exchange at the International Christian College in Tokyo.
At the University of Helsinki, I am working towards an MA in General Linguistics within the Linguistic Diversity and Digital Humanities program. I have yet to decide on a research topic. Still, my interests include indigenous language rights, minority & endangered languages, language death, and the intersection of gender and LGBTQ+ studies with linguistics.
Within this research project, I am participating in fieldwork and creating interview materials.
