ANTH 047 PZ -Language, Identity and Violence

Institution: Pitzer

Description: This course surveys literature from linguistic anthropology to investigate the processes by which social categories such as gender, race, and ethnicity are constructed and set in opposition. Topics include how language reflects and produces identities, how language shapes thought, and how ideologies about languages and speakers organize social life. Using the lens of language, we seek to understand forms of violence ranging from everyday discrimination to genocidal killing.

Prerequisite(s): Students should have a foundation in linguistic anthropology (ANTH003)

Note(s): Juniors and Seniors only
