SP 365 - The Intrepid Dialectologist: Learning Spanish Through Dialects and Community-Based Learning (4 Cr.)

(Formerly SP 265) (LER Understanding Diverse Perspectives)(GCR RPP)
As is the case with most languages, Spanish is not unified or monolithic. It has the multiplicity of varieties that reflect the diverse experiences and culture of a people who defy being categorized by nationality, ethnicity, or race. From Mexico to Argentina and Puerto Rico to Spain, this course will give students the tools to uncover the worldviews that the different varieties of Spanish can reveal. Through service learning, students will interview and converse with members of the Spanish speaking community in Maryland. This will give them the opportunity to experience first hand language diversity, and discuss how language as a social institution can create social class, social distance and social dominance. Prerequisite: SP 235  or placement. Variable semesters. Cortés-Conde.
