Introduction to linguistic anthropology, focusing on language and communication as they pertain to human culture and human social interaction.
Dates: June 15 - July 10, 2020; Cross listed with LING 095 OL1
This course examines the relationship between language and culture. We ask how language is shaped by social and cultural processes, how people use language in their daily lives, and we investigate the interaction between language and identity. Students will cover topics that include the power of propaganda, endangered languages, and codeswitching.
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.
Readings: The required readings for this course will be provided online through Blackboard. The course includes short discovery assignments and a final exam.
