Join the collaborative virtual seminar pilot project this month with our colleagues from the Associação Brasileria de Anthropologia (ABA), Canadian Anthropology Society/Société canadienne d’anthropologie (CASCA), and the European Association of Social Anthropologists (EASA) to bring you a virtual seminar on language and anthropological knowledge.

There are four papers which are the core of this debate. Monolinguism is a disease by Bruna Franchetto (ABA); Thinking through difference. The language of anthropological collaboration by Penelope Harvey (EASA); Political economies of language: power, epistemology and the representation of research by Alexandra Jaffe (AAA); and Transformations and linguistic alienations by Christine Jourdan (CASCA). Papers are now available on the website as PDFs. Add your comments and questions now, they will be posted on October 13. Join the presenters and four commentators for their online discussion on October 15 at 7am Pacific time, 10am Eastern time, 11am S. America Eastern Standard Time, 3pm London time, and 4pm Paris time. Participants will be able to see and hear the discussions, live.

While there is not a charge to participate in the webinar, please register in advance.
