Jennifer Ballantine Perera
Jennifer is the Director of the Gibraltar Garrison Library, which has recently become part of the University of Gibraltar, and also Director of the Institute for Gibralar and Mediterranean Studies. Her collaboration in the compilation of the Gibraltar component of the ICE project is essential. Her primary role is to guide us in our field-work at the library. As a Gibraltarian who lives and works there, she is also able to offer invaluable help in introducing us to the people we need to approach in order to compile the ICE-GBR corpus: speakers, journalists, writers, poets. In addition, her assistance extends to providing ideas as to where relevant texts might be found and giving us access to the necessary digital resources for the successful compilation of the corpus.
