Oxford Studies in the Anthropology of Language RSS

The series Oxford Studies in the Anthropology of Language is devoted to works from a wide array of scholarly traditions that treat linguistic practices as forms of social action. The series publishes two types of books: (1) those in which language itself is the main object of inquiry; and (2) those in which linguistic analysis is used as a method to shed light on other objects of inquiry. Books in this series are ethnographically rich and innovative in form and content, focusing on such issues as: linguistic inequality, old and new literacies, linguistic relativity, the contexts of linguistic change, language socialization, gendered language use, institutional discourse, agency and language, language contact, language endangerment and revitalization, poetics and performance, language ideologies, narrative analysis, and the aesthetics of language use.
