Bio

Ivona Kučerová is an Associate Professor in the Department of Linguistics and Languages, as well as member to both the Centre for Advanced Research in Experimental and Applied Linguistics and the Institute on Globalization and Human Condition at McMaster University. The focus of her research lies in developing cognitively adequate methods for teaching adults Indigenous languages to improve health and well-being outcomes within Indigenous communities. Successful language revitalization increases intergenerational mobility, language mobility and societal inclusion among the community’s Elders. Additionally, Ivona’s projected research intends to investigate which language revitalization methods can better offset language attrition associated with aging, and how to maximize language revitalization benefits over a lifespan.
