CLASP students and faculty are engaged in a range of research projects and initiatives that have led to distinctive theses, dissertations, and publications in top-tier journals and edited volumes. CLASP members present at a range of competitive conferences nationally and internationally, showcasing their innovative work.
Recetly, Students from CU Boulder’s program in Culture, Language, and Social Practice (CLASP) joined their advisor Professor Kira Hall to deliver a well received panel at the AAA/CASCA conference in Vancouver, Canada, November 2019. Entitled “Language and Middleclassness,” the panel originated from a Spring 2019 CU Boulder seminar of the same name, taught by Prof. Hall. Seven students submitted abstracts of work conducted in the seminar and were invited by the Society for Linguistic Anthropology to present papers.
