Nathan E Meyer
I am enrolled in the sociocultural PhD program but focus my studies primarily in the subfield linguistic anthropology. My dissertation examines the culture of high school policy debate in the United States. My research engages theories of language ideology, academic engagement, youth culture; and political discourse and performance. I am also interested in language revitalization and as well as reflexive and collaborative approaches to ethnography. I have previously done fieldwork on a Lakota reservation in South Dakota about a non-Romanized orthography created by a first-speaker and elder.
