Great Diagrams in Anthropology, Linguistics, and Social Theory

I’ve set up a photo pool on Flickr as a public archive of Great Diagrams in Anthropology, Linguistics, and Social Theory.

Consider this your invitation to contribute!

(“Partial personal semantic network for Tony D’Abrosca” by Claudia Strauss in What Makes Tony Run? Schemas as Motives Reconsidered)

Tuamatuan Conception of the Cosmos, by Paiore.  Inspiration for Margaret Mead’s fieldwork in American Samoa.

AAA conference (be there!)

I’m excited about the AAA Annual Meeting this week. Actually, I’ve been excited about it since this spring, when I first learned that the conference is being held at the Wardman Park Marriott, just a 10 minute bike ride (6.5 without traffic laws) from home on the GW campus. (okay- my actual home is the building behind the one pictured.)

I’ve circled more sessions in my abstract book than I could ever really attend. Jen Cardew (Synthesis of Thought) is presenting in a panel on “Issues in Applied Linguistic Anthropology” (Sat., 8am-11:45). Cardew! Kroskrity! Haviland! I’ll be sure to check that one out.

If you’re planning on attending, too, get in touch with me at GoNow at sign gwu dot edu .

Literature review

Here’s a literature review I’ve been writing for a long-term research project on legal anthropology and linguistic ideologies. Enjoy.

A History of Legal Anthropology and the Next Generation of Research at the Intersection of Language, Ideology, and Power

I think that title may need some work.  Leave a comment if you have any thoughts on that.

Anthropology in Performance

This is the script of a play that I co-wrote with Michelle Gorman, Michaela Grillo, and Chris Bloechl, and which our Anthropology in Performance class staged in May, 2007. Professor Allen teaches the course. […or “taught” — past tense? I hope not.] I’m really proud of what we accomplished.
