Question: Why a central Institution?

An increasing number of institutions have expressed interest to collaborate with the SCAALA, expressing concern that the SCAALA should remain in South and Central America, and The Caribbean, but networked with all other bodies in Linguistic Anthropology. Here, the SCAALA plans to work with institutions globally, and is currently negotiating with those bodies, while building the global SCAALA network.

Our role as an annual conference is to solidify and advance efforts by the current prominent and indeed crucial organizations focusing on Linguistic Anthropology, and related fields.
