Linguistic Anthropology Reading Group

The Linguistic Anthropology Reading Group meets monthly to discuss a range of readings selected from scholars writing in the tradition of linguistic and semiotic anthropology. Readings range from classic papers in the formation of linguistic anthropology, as one of the four fields of North American Anthropology, to modern ethnographies written through the lens of language. Emphasis will be given to how these analyses of language, from sociolinguistics to semiotic theory, inform broader themes in Anthropology. Meetings will also include opportunities to discuss one’s own research.
