Marian Klamer

Marian Klamer (1965) is Professor of Austronesian and Papuan Linguistics at Leiden University. Klamer has worked on Austronesian and Papuan languages in Indonesia for some twenty five years, and has published on a wide range of topics including the morphology, typology, grammaticalization, language contact, and historical reconstruction of languages in Indonesia. She is the author of grammars on two Austronesian languages (Kambera, 1998; Alorese, 2011) and two Papuan languages (Teiwa, 2010; Kaera, 2014). Over the years, Klamer has lead numerous projects studying the grammatical variety and contact-induced change in Austronesian and Papuan languages spoken by small-scale communities in Indonesia. In the OCSEAN consortium, she is responsible for the collection of the linguistic data in Island SE Asia. With Hanna Fricke she organises the Training in Linguistic Data Collection, to be held in Leiden in May-July 2020.
