Section Description

This course is designed for those planning to work or live in increasingly multicultural, multilingual contexts, and for those interested in the interdisciplinary study of language and culture. While our primary focus will be on the fields of intercultural and cross-cultural communication, we will touch upon related areas of study such as language and thought, linguistic anthropology, sociolinguistics, language and identity, language and gender, language policy, and educational linguistics. We will explore various theories of culture, foundational and recent research on intercultural and cross-cultural communication, and several related topics such as linguistic relativity, linguistic diversity (including culturally-influenced language practices), language contact, dialect/register variation, and critical, equity-minded cultural competence. We will also perform a self-study of linguistic and cultural exchanges that we engage in throughout the semester.
