Aug. 19, 2017

Joint Anthropology & Linguistics PhD student William Cotter has recently published an article in the Journal of Linguistic Anthropology. William's article, titled 'Gaza at the Margins? Legibility and Indeterminacy in the Israel-Palestine Conflict' examines military leaflets and SMS messages disseminated by the Israeli military in the Gaza Strip. The article highlights how language use in this context is used to reinforce notions of democratic order, rationality, and the sovereignty of the state.
