Regimes of LanguageSAR Press PublicationRegimes of Language: Ideologies, Polities, and IdentitiesIn Regimes of Language, ten leading linguistic anthropologists integrate two often segregated domains: politics (without language) and language (without politics). Their essays contribute to an understanding of the role of language ideologies and discursive practices in state formation, nationalism, and the maintenance of ethnic groups, on the one hand, and in the creation of national, ethnic, and professional identities, on the other.

Meaning in AnthropologySAR Press PublicationMeaning in Anthropology

“Cultural anthropology’s main contribution to science has always been the investigation of the range of human cultures and the demonstration of the variety, including variety in symbols and meanings, in these cultures. In recent years, anthropological interest in meaning and symbolism has increased and moved into new types of analysis. Meaning in Anthropology is a useful array of papers representing some of these. Linguistics has had an especially strong influence on this movement, and a number of contributions show that influence.”—Science
