Announcement - apologies for that late notice


The Archaeology Reading Group, Linguistics in the Pub and the
Ethnography Forum invite you for an interdisciplinary session to
discuss the fieldwork experience.

Fieldwork across disciplines: what can we learn from each other?

·          What do our approaches to fieldwork have in common?

·          How might we benefit from sharing information and techniques?

·          Are there any differences in how we interact with the
communities at our field sites?

·          Come and share your experiences and thoughts!

·          If you’d like to read something in advance, see Chapter 17
‘Toponymy: recording and analyzing placenames in a language area’ in
The Oxford Handbook of Linguistic Fieldwork, or have a look at
Chapters 1.1 ‘Anthropology and Linguistics’ and 1.9 ‘Anthropology and
Archaeology’ in The SAGE Handbook of Social Anthropology (both
accessible as e-books via login to UniMelb library)
