NICHOLAS LIMERICK, University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, was awarded an Engaged Anthropology grantt in March 2015 to aid engaged activities in 'Workshops on Multicultural Recognition and Quechua Language Use in Intercultural Bilingual Education in Ecuador.' In one of the public schools where he conducted research, the grant allowed for the piloting of a Quichua education program that would promote speaking in distinct registers of Quichua in the same classroom by students. In collaboration with the directors of the school, the grant was also used to carry out a series of workshops with teachers. The workshops used the results of his dissertation to help teachers better address linguistic diversity among parents and students.
