    • The Department of Anthropology announces a Workshop on "Living Names: Encountering Naming Ethnographically Time: 9:00a - 3:00p Location: Mattin 160 Details:

      The Department of Anthropology announces a Workshop on "Living Names: Encountering Naming Ethnographically

      Notions of the name, and of naming, figure prominently in many domains of philosophical, linguistic, and anthropological inquiry. Explorations of naming, however, and the status of the name, have tended to use explanatory frameworks which assume only limited modes of relation between name and word, name and world, or name and language. The name has been approached, grammatically, as the exemplary form of the noun, socially as practical means for addressing and ordering kin (or the divine), performatively as a magical mode of invocation, or logically as a type, a class, or an empty set. These tendencies, when taken as isolated theoretical investigations, can make the name appear as flat as copper cast into the ocean. Yet, the simultaneous existence of such diverse perspectives points to the conceptual and empirical fecundity of the name, in its singularity and intractable ambiguity, which seems to remain unplumbed. This workshop invites participants to modestly address the ways in which anthropological and ethnographic explorations of names, as they appear in lived worlds, can be used to unsettle a rote application of moribund theoretical framings onto the name. What experiential narratives or phenomenal evocations of names and naming could challenge the name as a limited object of language or the act of naming as a predictable form of speech? With this workshop we turn our anthropological attention to names, to stimulate a dialogue, and to suggest or recuperate an ethnographic approach to the name. The emphasis is not on how theoretical frameworks can be applied to the name but on what worlds could come out of or through encounters with it.

      The Workshop:

      This workshop has been conceived not as a forum for polished papers but as an open engagement and discussion of material in progress. The workshop will consist of two panels, each with three presentations (members of the panel will be a mix of faculty and graduate students) and a moderator/rapporteur. Each participant will be asked to pre-circulate either a paper or notes. The panels will begin with a short (10 minute) presentation from each member. The floor will then be open to a round-table style discussion, directed by the moderator. Each session will last approximately one and a half hours with a break for lunch. The workshop will conclude with a wrap up session in which all participants will have an opportunity to share stories about their own names, expand upon earlier discussion, and consider the possibilities for future research.

       Thanks you and I hope you can attend,

      Victor Kumar
