Curriculum vitae Curriculum vitae

Biographical details

Myfany Turpin has been working on Australian Aboriginal songs and languages since 1996. Her research interests include the relationship between language and music, especially of lesser-known cultures; and identifying ways to support the continuation of endangered languages and performance arts. More specifically, her work examines Aboriginal song-poetry and its relationship to spoken languages. She is also involved in linguistic documentation of the Aboriginal language Kaytetye as well as Indigenous ecological knowledge and the lexicon in Arandic languages.

Research interests

Australian Aboriginal music and languages; the relationships between language and music, poetic metre and musical rhythm; fieldwork and language documentation; archives and repatriation.

Current projects

Central Australian Aboriginal songs

Song, dance and design were once the principal means by which knowledge was transferred in Australian Aboriginal societies. Some songs were traded, prized for their knowledge, artistic merit and power. Today, traditional song genres remain vital to Indigenous identity, yet many are highly endangered. As records of history, law and religion, songs abound with social and ecological information. As poetry and music, they expose the rhythm of language and reveal different ways that people organise sound. And as items of trade, they leave clues to the interactions that occurred between different linguistic groups.

Mapping the diversity of Aboriginal song: social and ecological significances for Australiawill work with Aboriginal people in the inland region of Australia to document their traditional songs. The project will seek to address three broad questions:

  • What are the forms and meanings of songs from inland Australia?
  • Are there regional musical-poetic styles across the region?
  • Does the mapping of musical-poetic styles inform understandings of cultural diffusion across Australia?

Kaytetye and Prosodic Theory

Well-founded models of the word and the syllable are central to language, and its wider role in fields such as language teaching and speech recognition. This project will develop Australia’s role in the provision of quality analyses for these purposes, by determining whether the unusual linguistic structures in an endangered Australian language, Kaytetye, require major revisions to general models.

Re-integrating Central Australian cultural collections

Large bodies of Central Australian Indigenous cultural knowledge are held in diverse public and private collections. With the Indigenous body the Central Land Council, this project undertakes research to connect these collections to the right people, and help develop new sustainable uses of documentations in land management,employment, training and health.

Below are the community members and researchers and the named projects with which I am working on in collaboration:
