ANTHR 6460 - Language Ideologies and Practices

(crosslisted) LSP 6460  
Spring. 4 credits. Student option grading.

V. Santiago-Irizarry.

Cultural identity and citizenship in the United States have often been organized around linguistic difference and the issues this raises in an English-dominant society. Drawing from anthropological theories on language, this course will look at the place of language as a signifying practice in the United States by focusing on the experience of Latino communities. Topics to be explored include linguistic diversity and change, accommodation and resistance, language maintenance and shift, linguistic ideologies, the production of language hierarchies, and institutional applications of language.
