Meeting Description:

The first constitution of the Anthropological Society of Washington, the predecessor to the American Anthropological Association, called for the 'study of the Natural History of Man' including 'Archaeology, Somatology, Ethnology, and Philology.' The early field of anthropology was heavily influenced by philology and models of language evolution and historical change. At this conference on Language, Culture and History we would like to bring contemporary theories from all fields of linguistics, anthropology and related fields to the 'natural history of humans.' Specifically, we want to address questions about the complex interactions between language, history and culture.
