The Linguistic Anthropology Working Group
LAWG coordinates 6-7 workshop lectures during the academic year (3-4 per semester). In a series of workshops, invited speakers present original research pertaining to linguistic anthropology; this may be recently published work or work-in-progress. Prior to the guest talks, the group meets to discuss a recent publication of the guest speaker, a publication that is requested or suggested. By providing an intellectual and collegial forum for the exchange of ideas, LAWG also offers a space in which professors and students alike can try out new ideas, receive feedback, and engage in stimulating conversation without the pressures of a more formal conference or symposium setting. In general, the invited speaker lectures for about an hour, often responding to questions throughout his or her presentation, followed by a period of general discussion that has proven to be engaging, inquisitive, and collaborative.
