ANTH 4750 - Language and Identity

This course explores the links between identity and language. Students will examine how different types of identity get mobilized by different ways of speaking and by judgments about the social value of different speech styles. A semester-long research project comprised of short field research assignments will allow students to apply linguistic anthropology methods to examine the speech differences that surround us.

Credits: 3 hours

Notes: This course is approved as a writing-intensive course which satisfies the baccalaureate-level writing requirement of the student’s curriculum.
