Welcome back home! The Philadelphia meetings were a great success and it was wonderful to see so many old friends and colleagues. The Society for Linguistic Anthropology meeting was standing room only. The SLA organization as a whole is very healthy with an expanding journal and more sessions this year than last year, including four invited sessions. This updated website was enthusiastically received by the membership.
Now is the time, though, to convert enthusiasm into words and actions…Please submit summaries of your sessions, news about your recent books and publications, essays on questions important to language and culture or other topics your feel might be relevant. People who would like to write regularly for the blog are invited to become official SLA bloggers, all others can drop notes in our submit box and we can post your blogs for you.
Looking forward to seeing all your contributions!
