|Meeting Description:||Personal Names and Social Identities
American Anthropological Association Meeting, Chicago, November 2013
Organizer: Karen Pennesi, University of Western Ontario
I am looking for panelists to present research on how personal names are used in the construction of identities. We will start with an understanding of identities as emergent through performance, jointly produced and adapted to context. The aim is to bring together anthropologists interested in onomastics to explore how personal names are treated both as linguistic structures and as symbolic resources.
