The Ethno, Linguistic, and Visual (ELVis) lab is a space devoted to research and teaching in cultural and linguistic anthropology. The lab houses video and audio recording equipment, software for editing, transcription, and linguistic data analysis, and provides students and faculty with a sound-controlled space for conducting ethnographic interviews.
