Thérèse de Vet

Thérèse de Vet is an assistant professor of Anthropology at the University of Arizona. Her research on orality and literacy is informed by several decades of fieldwork in Bali and her academic training in classics. Her recent article, “Parry in Paris: Structuralism, Historical Linguistics, and the Oral Theory” (2005), inspired her current work on the history of scholarship and ideas as they relate to literacy and orality, and on how these humanistic beliefs were transferred unexamined into the new field of anthropology at the beginning of the twentieth century.
