Canadian Linguistics Association National Achievement Award 2013
In lieu of an abstract, here is a brief excerpt of the content:

The 2013 recipient of the Canadian Linguistic Association National Achievement Award is Dr. Keren Rice of the Department of Linguistics, University of Toronto.

This award honours researchers whose work has expanded our knowledge in linguistics and has brought distinction to the Canadian linguistics community. It also recognizes their role as ambassadors in the promotion of Canadian linguistics here and abroad. Keren is a very worthy recipient of this award.

Keren's research in phonology, morphology, Dene language description and theorizing, and indigenous language studies has been recognized through a number of research grants and prestigious awards, including a Killam Research Fellowship, the Canada Research Chair in Linguistics and Aboriginal Studies, the Leonard Bloomfield Book Prize, the Killam Prize, and the Molson Prize.

With the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council, she has helped shape the research context for all Canadians by participating in the development of the revised Tri-Council ethics policy, as well as policies and programs relating to aboriginal research in Canada. Keren has also served with the National Science Foundation in the United States.

Keren's work as an academic leader has led to the establishment of the Aboriginal Studies program and the Centre for Aboriginal Initiatives at the University of Toronto; she is presently chair of the Department of Linguistics at the University of Toronto. She served as the president of the CLA from 1998 to 2000, and in 2012 was the president of the Linguistic Society of America.

Keren's work with students is well known. Many members of the CLA have some connection to Keren's teaching—being taught by Keren, being taught by someone taught by Keren, or being a colleague of hers. She has received two teaching awards at the University of Toronto and has been invited to teach at prestigious linguistic institutes, including the LSA institute in the summer of 2013 at the University of Michigan, where she served as the Hale Professor.

Keren has also done important work as an editor. She will be stepping down at the end of 2013 after 11 years as editor of the International Journal of American Linguistics. The impact of her work with this journal has been broad. She has in addition served on a number of editorial boards and editorial panels for journals in phonology and other fields, and was an associate editor of Language for five years. She has co-edited seven books on a diverse range of topics and served as a guest editor for issues of the Canadian Journal of Linguistics and the Journal of East Asian Linguistics. In addition, she co-edited the five-volume Blackwell Companion to Phonology.
