If you learn, as I have, that "ars" was the Hittite word for the human posterior some 3,700 years ago (and apparently much longer -- indeed, all the way back to inferred Proto-Indo-European), how can you not be interested in the anthropology of languages?  :>)

I will be presenting Wednesday, November 17th in a session titled "Borderlands Politics, Policy, and the Discourse of Border Activism." My paper, "Fighting to be Indian: Citizenship, belonging, and activism in the Nepali Language Movement," will be (I think) at 7:00 pm. Hope to see some of you there.

Hello all. Just a note to say that online registration for the World Oral Literature Project's upcoming workshop (15-16 December) in Cambridge is now open. You can find a draft programme, list of participants, and online booking form on the CRASSH website: .

The event is designed to bring together established scholars, early career researchers and graduate students with indigeous researchers, museum curators, archivists and audio-visual experts to discuss strategies for collecting, recording, preserving and disseminating oral literatures and endangered narrative traditions.

Hi Chelsea! I'll be around and presenting something on linguistic identities. I would be up for meeting and hear/see more about other anthropologists interested in language.

Would anyone be interested in organizing a lunch (or coffee/drinks) during the AAAs this year? I'll be there presenting a paper on linguistic citizenship and would be interested to meet up with other linguistically inclined anthropologists!

Hello, I just wanted to point interested people in the direction of the World Oral Literature Project, which was established recently at the University of Cambridge. Our aim is to to support local communities and committed fieldworkers engaged in the collection and preservation of oral literature by providing funding for original research, alongside training in fieldwork and digital archiving methods. To find more information about applying for the next cycle of funding, attending our upcoming conference, or discussion/collaboration, either visit our website ( or send me a message!
