Introduction

General

The GLOCAL, The Global Council on Anthropological Linguistics, is a council steering annual conferences, publications, and media, scholarship, consultations, and collaborations on Linguistic Anthropology / Anthropological Linguistics, with a global focus.

Scholars globally gather to engage in work on fields in Linguistic and Cultural Anthropology, though this does not limit interest to Linguistic Anthropologists, Linguistics, or Anthropologists. Networking a global set of higher institutions, and organizations, the GLOCAL collaborates with multiple bodies to increase the scope and quality of work in these fields.
