Debenport to present at annual anthropology conference

The 2008 Annual Meeting of the American Anthropological Association, which will be in San Francisco from November 19 through 23, will include a paper given by Chicago’s own Erin Debenport.

Erin’s paper, “Private Notice: Negotiating Secrecy in Public Uses of a Pueblo Language,” is part of the excitingly titled panel “Privates and Counterprivates,” which will focus on the modern conceptualization of the ‘private’ sphere in a world of ever-expanding ‘publics.’ We expect to hear good things after the conference!
