The Humanities Center’s Colloquiua series will kick-off with a roundtable discussion with Scott Alvord, Jennifer Bown, Troy Cox, & Cynthia Hallen on Thursday, Sept. 14th at 3:00 PM in 4010 JFSB.

Linguistics is widely considered at once central and peripheral to the humanities. Its subject is language, probably the most integral of all humanizing agencies, but many linguistic research methods share more with the social sciences than with philosophy, literary criticism, art history, film and media studies, or cultural studies. So where exactly does linguistics fit? More specifically, where does it fit at BYU, where language is so central to the university’s identity, and where language faculty have proven so productive?
