There will be a fieldwork discussion group this week on Friday from 1-2pm, in SS560A. The topic is: Fieldworker responsibility to the community. What are some things that we as linguists can do to give back to the communities or individuals we work with? Is there anything (concrete or abstract) that we are obligated to do? How does this vary across language situations? How do you manage these responsibilities in conjunction with the very different pressures of academia?
