Abstract

Can we really talk about ‘advanced’ linguistic ethnography', and if so, what does it look like? This paper offers quite a personal view of training programmes, PhDs, interdisciplinary relationships and academic career structures, covering courses like ‘Security, Ethnography & Discourse’, the epistemic sensibilities emerging in doctoral projects, the challenges for talk of ‘cutting edge breakthroughs’ in an interdisciplinary programme like linguistic ethnography, as well as the need to consider organisational constraints and opportunities, career-stage included, in efforts to move forward, both individually and collectively.
