Linguistic anthropologists seek to understand the dynamic relationship between language and culture. In this course, students will examine how basic elements of language are imbued with cultural meaning, and how cultural meaning is expressed through various linguistic modalities. The course will cover key themes in linguistic anthropology including language, gender, and sexuality, language and race, language diversity, and language and power. As part of this process, we will examine the theory behind ethnographic data collection, analysis, and transcription. Throughout the course, students will have the opportunity to collect and analyze their own data.
