SOA 275 - Language, Power, and Identity (4 Cr.)

(formerly ANT 275) (LER-DIV)(GCR RPP)
This course considers the intersections of language, power, and identity. We will draw from approaches in linguistic anthropology to look at how language is used to express identities, as communities and as individuals, and to challenge or reaffirm existing power structures. We will also unpack pervasive ideologies about language for their cultural meanings and examine the ways these ideologies reflect certain cultural assumptions about gender, sexuality, class, race and ethnicity, as well as technology. Prerequisite: SOA 100  or permisson of instructor. Spring semester. Offered 2017-18 and alternate years. Discontinued after 2017-18. Schwarz.
