Welcome everyone!

To start the introductions: I'm finishing up my PhD at Rutgers University. I've been working in Nepal and Darjeeling, India since my time in Nepal as a Peace Corps volunteer.

My dissertation focuses on the Nepali language movement in India, language ideologies, and the production of social difference.

Feel free to start discussions, add text, questions, etc.

Dear Chelsea!
Great topic! We could perhaps discuss some more on language ideologies and social difference. I am working at the Max Planck Institute for Social Anthropology, and I am currently trying to finish my Ph.D on, to put it short, linguistic conflict in Belgium. In the last part of my dissertation I describe the different language ideologies (French and Dutch, German was not part of my research) in discourse (metadiscourse, metapragmatics), practice and how it influences the linguistic conflict and ideas about group identification. I would love to know how language ideologies feature in your research?...

I will learn much more than I can possibly offer to the group. Thanks for making this possible.

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!

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!

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.

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.
