Language at Princeton

Joshua Timothy Katz

Back to "Spring 2017" courses

An introduction to linguistic analysis, with an emphasis on hands-on work. Making use of as many different sorts of resources as possible — animate, inanimate; written, spoken; town, gown — we will try as a group to understand the history and current state of language at Princeton University and in Princeton, NJ just outside the “Orange Bubble.” What languages and what modes of communication have and have not been used here? When? Why? How? By whom? We will discover the answers by exploring archives, conducting interviews, and generally engaging in original and creative research.
