In reply to several requests, here's the bibliography for our call for
papers posted earlier this week: "Is there a postmodern linguistic

If you need the original call for papers let one of us know.

We asked in the call for papers that if you were
interested in submitting an abstract that you send it by Feb. 1.
It would however be ENORMOUSLY useful to us to get some indication from
you if you're planning to submit an abstract. We'd be glad to work with
people to think through appropriate ideas. We're very excited about this
panel. We've already been approached by 2 publishers who are interested
in publishing up the results, so we anticipate an edited collection at
least arising from this. We're also exploring the possibility of a
free-standing follow-up conference.

The following is a bibliography of some works that we've found useful in
thinking about the relationship of linguistic anthropology to postmodern

topic. We do believe however that it includes some of the most important
and representative arguments.
