I’ve just added this lecture by University of Chicago linguistic anthropologist Michael Silverstein to the calendar*. It’s being sponsored by the Linguistic Anthropology Working Group, and anyone’s welcome to go — be sure, though, to RSVP!!

  • When: Fri, February 27, 4pm – 6pm
  • Where: 110 Wheeler

The title of the talk is: “The elementary forms of culture in a post-‘cultural’ world: Signification–circulation–emanation.” A lecture on how interdiscursivity of semiotic emblems lies at the heart of the establishment and institutionalization of semiotic value.
