LIN 200 Language and Culture (3 credits)

This course is an exploration into the interaction of language and culture—how language shapes and contributes to cultural understandings and how we make sense of our world, as well as how culture shapes and contributes to particular forms and uses of language. We will explore how language intersects with the social life of diverse individuals and communities as well as the role of language as it functions to construct and/or reinforce the ways in which we interact with one another. Course material draws on the fields of sociolinguistics and linguistic anthropology.
