Agalychnis callidryas pair: A 'Language and Sociocultural Anthropology' Course, OCW, 21st century linguistic turn in Anthropology, In World Univ & Sch

I'd like to find, or develop, a fascinating Open Course Ware course entitled

'Language and Sociocultural Anthropology,' and related courses,

and develop a 21st century linguistic turn in Anthropology -

http://worlduniversity.wikia.com/wiki/Anthropology -

incorporating the growth of World University and School in ALL languages into this new focus in anthropological research, -

so, virtual field work in, and with, World University and School itself, as it grows,

to help build, for example, virtual field sites, and archives.

This might highlight ethnographies that already focus on symbols (e.g. Symbolic Anthropology, for example, Victor Turner's the The Forest of Symbols, or applied linguistics), but further focus richly on language itself, vis-a-vis field work.

Here, Anthropology would go digital, significantly, in this WUaS building process with a language focus.

Thus, in this approach, ethnography and field work would focus on language use explicitly,

in papers, books and in dissertations, developing this focus in great depth,

and building on all existing sociocultural ethnography.
