Fallou Ngom presents Forensic Linguistics and Asylum Seeking Language Analysis for the Determination of Origin (LADO)

Fallou Ngom is Professor of Anthropology and Director of the African Language Program at Boston University. His current research interests include the interactions between African languages and non-African languages, the adaptations of Islam in sub-Saharan Africa, and Ajami literatures—records of African languages written in Arabic script. He seeks to understand the knowledge buried in African Ajami literatures and the historical, cultural, and religious heritage that has found expression in this manner.
