Open Anthropology on Gender, Language, & Power
Following the March 2019 Open Anthropology issue on Walls, Fences, and Barriers: Anthropology on the Border (and see the previous blog-post for additional resources), our upcoming issue will focus on gender, language, and power. The issue was tentatively titled “When Women Speak” although that may need to change because of a recent conference and website that has claimed that name. Perhaps “Women Speak” or “Women Speaking”–open to suggestions!
Open Anthropology draws on the Anthrosource/Wiley-Blackwell journals to make available 15 articles as free-to-read for one year. We also point to additional resources within and beyond anthropology in our Editors’ Notes and on this blog.
We are currently assembling material, so let us know via the comments below or via Twitter, LinkedIn, or Facebook what are some key articles and resources you would like to see made free-to-read or referenced.
Resources on Women Speaking
- Through June 30, American Anthropological Association members can apply to a Write to Change the World workshop.
- As an initial guide, check out the March 2018 Anthrobites: Feminist Anthropology produced by Siobhan McGuirk with Christa Craven.
- There is a brand new Society for Linguistic Anthropology SLA Blog that debuted in 2019. Also the Anthropology Blogs 2019 page has some useful feeds.
- Our feature image for this post is from the forthcoming book by Susan Gal and Judith Irvine, Signs of Difference: Language and Ideology in Social Life.
