If your name is not on the list here and you would like to speak, please let me know when you would like to talk and what topic you’ll talk about.

The intention of the Fieldwork Forum is to share our ongoing research with each other. Participants agree to take turns presenting whatever data they are currently working on. This can be data that you have gathered in your own fieldwork, or it could be another person’s fieldwork data that you are trying to analyze.  Talks are friendly and not very formal, and oriented toward helping each other deal with fieldwork data in the best way possible.

Students from all departments are welcome.
