Language and Culture

Back to "Spring 2013" courses

Language plays a crucial role in our lives, providing the thread that connects us with others, conveys meaning, encodes power relations within societies, and much more. Through and within language, poets speak, governments rule, and we conduct much of our everyday lives. Today’s linguistic anthropologists have built a synthesis of approaches that draws on many disciplines. This class examines the main strands of that synthesis, learning how to bring together the analysis of micro-level linguistic patterns and the study of language in broader sociocultural contexts.
