Description: Linguistic Anthropology examines the intersections of language, culture and society. Studies in linguistic anthropology range from micro-level analyses of interpersonal discourse (looking at language in everyday and ritual contexts, at different linguistic aspects of artistic and expressive language, or at social meaning and social variation in speech) to the macro-level analysis of speech communities where language is used to form social identities or for playing out power relations between people, institutions and even countries. The faculty is deeply dedicated to field research, and has areal strengths in cultures and languages of Native North America (Mohawk, Oneida, Ojibwe, Cree, Inuit), Africa, Norway, and in language and speech in contemporary, industrialised North American society.
