Dissertation title: DOCUMENTATION, RECLAMATION AND THE PLACE OF THE SETTLER LINGUIST

Date: Wednesday, April 10, 2019
Time: 1: pm
Place: Harvill Building Room 428

Abstract: Building on a core consisting of published reports of research into information and intonation structure, published reports of community-based language-reclamation and -repatriation activities, and Umóⁿhoⁿ language textbooks, I situate these results and the work out of which they have emerged as interventions in and through settler colonial documentary linguistics. Tension between settler-guided and community-guided interventions can be fruitful for language-reclamation and -repatriation agendas, but the needed clarification of authority has not yet found its way into the ethical literature of documentary linguists or linguistic anthropologists working in these agendas.
