Free Access in January 2019 There has been an increasing interest in the emerging subfield within linguistics and anthropology often referred to as community-based research (Himmelmann 1998, Rice 2010, Crippen and Robinson 2013, among others). This volume brings together perspectives from academics, community members, and those that find themselves in both academia and the community. The volume begins with a working definition of the notions of community-based research as a practice and illustrates how such notions shifted, without abandoning the outlined tenets within the working definition, as the chapters developed to include notions of community-based research as a tool and ideology as well as an orientation. Each of the 17 chapters represents a case-study with the first five including discussions of broader issues and theoretical perspectives while exploring community-based research as an emerging subfield within linguistics. The case-studies comprise work from the Americas, Australia, India, Europe, and Africa. The goal of the volume is to build on the emerging literature and practices in the field to arrive at a better understanding of how community-based research is theorized and practiced in a variety of environments, communities, and cultures.

Reading the Fire engages America�s �first literatures,� traditional Native American tales and legends, as literary art and part of our collective imaginative heritage. This revised edition of a book first published to critical acclaim in 1983 includes four new essays. Drawing on ethnographic data and regional folklore, Jarold Ramsey moves from origin and trickster narratives and Indian ceremonial texts, into interpretations of stories from the Nez Perce, Clackamas Chinook, Coos, Wasco, and Tillamook repertories, concluding with a set of essays on the neglected subject of Native literary responses to contact with Euroamericans. In his finely worked, erudite analyses, he mediates between an author-centered, print-based narrative tradition and one that is oral, anonymous, and tribal, adducing parallels between Native texts and works by Shakespeare, Yeats, Beckett, and Faulkner.

Montana 1911: A Professor and his Wife among the Blackfeet is the complete text diary kept by Mrs. W.M. Uhlenbeck-Melchior while accompanying her husband, the Dutch anthropologist/linguist, Dr. C.C. Uhlenbeck during his fieldwork on the Blackfeet reservation in Montana in the summer of 1911. Her eyewitness account of their three-month stay gives the reader fascinating insights into the world of the Blackfeet as much as the Uhlenbecks. The first edition ever to be translated into English, this book is complete with notes, introductions, and supplementary materials. The book includes essays on Blackfeet mythology and folklore that detail life before the reservation period and a biographical sketch of the Uhlenbecks, featuring aspects of C.C. Uhlenbeck's career as a linguist and scholar, as well as numerous photographs from the era.
