Question: Why a central Institution?
Several institutions have convened with plans to collaborate for CALA, and have expressed concern that the CALA should be kept in The Asia, but networked with all other bodies in Linguistic Anthropology. However, the CALA plans to work with several other Institutions globally, and is currently negotiating with those bodies.
Question: Won’t the CALA interrupt the aims of other well established organizations in Anthropology or Linguistic Anthropology?
The CALA has no intention to do this, but to organize and develop the CALA so to support all Asian, and global, Linguistic Anthropologists, and organizations in Linguistic Anthropology. Our role as an annual conference is to solidify and advance efforts by the current prominent and indeed crucial organizations focusing on Linguistic Anthropology, and related fields.
