Takanashi presents at AAA

Hiroko Takanashi, assistant professor of Japanese, will present a paper at the 105th Annual Meeting of the American Anthropological Association in San Jose, California, November 15-19. Takanashi’s paper, “Hypothetical represented discourse as joking stance index in Japanese conversation,” is in the session entitled “The dynamics of stance in joking interaction” under the Society for Linguistic Anthropology section. Her paper demonstrates how the speaker’s joking stance is publicly displayed, negotiated, and jointly constructed among the speech participants.
