The final reading in part 1 of Cultural Anthropology 2020–after pondering Anthropology-in-General, Culture, and Fieldwork–was about language. We read chapter 4, “Language” for this class and then moved on to How is race constructed for the next class.

The class had similar themes to Intro-to-Anthropology on Language, including Laura Bohannan’s Shakespeare in the Bush (in Guest, 101). (See this Shakespeare in the Bush blog-post for some of my own thoughts on the article.)

Living Anthropologically means documenting history, interconnection, and power during a time of global transformation. We need to care for others as we attempt to build a world together. This blog is a personal project of Jason Antrosio, author of Fast, Easy, and In Cash: Artisan Hardship and Hope in the Global Economy.
