*As you may already know four associations - EASA, ABA, AAA and CASCA -
are organizing an experimental virtual seminar entitled La langue et le
savoir anthropologique/language and anthropological knowledge/língua e
conhecimento antropológico that aims to build a multilingual environment
which minimizes the need for formal translation and interpretation. See: for more information.

The seminar will explore the centrality of language in the production of
anthropological knowledge and its political aspects, in two particular
ways: as central to the ethnographic encounter and as central to the
global circulation of this knowledge.

The format of the seminar is as follows: four scholars representing each
association (Bruna Franchetto, Penelope Harvey, Alexandra Jaffe and
Christine Jourdan) will make available their papers (in French, English
and Portuguese) on a platform to which anyone will have access for a
period of about one month, starting October 1, 2013. There will be a live
event on October 15, 2013, where four discussants (Omar Ribeiro Thomaz,
Benoit de l'Estoile, Salikoko Mufwene, and Petra Rethmann) will comment
on the papers. For the next ten days, the chair Miguel Vale de Almeida
and moderator Deirdre Meintel will monitor an online written discussion,
which can take place in French, English, Portuguese and Spanish. The
seminar will be closed formally on October 25th, 2013.
