In an attempt to foster online debate on the linguistic ethnography of language and communication, UKLEF is piloting an e-seminar series.These e-seminars are loosely modeled after the Media Anthropology Network seminars and take the form of moderated email discussions of papers in linguistic ethnography. The pilot will be based on Jan Blommaert's keynote lecture at the Explorations in Ethnography and Education Conference, Aston University, September 2009 and the paper that resulted from it:

Historical bodies and historical space.
