Attending the AAA conference

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 10 minutes by bike from home on the GW campus.

I've circled more sessions in the 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, and even Alim!

I'll be sure to check that one out.

Literature review: legal anthropology

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. If you have any thoughts, feel free to leave a comment.
