Section Description

This course is an introduction to linguistic anthropology, which investigates the relationship between language and culture. The course asks how language is shaped by social and cultural processes, how people use language in their daily lives, and probes the interaction between language and identity. We will initially explore the building blocks of human language, in order to better understand its role in social context. A major goal of this course is for students to work to examine their own linguistic beliefs and attitudes, and to appreciate linguistic and cultural diversity. This course will make extensive use of media resources, natural language examples, and recent scholarship in linguistic anthropology. In spring 2021 this course will be offered remotely. Readings: The required readings for this course will be provided online through Blackboard.
