ANTHR 6475 - Culture, Language, and Thought

Spring. 4 credits. Student option grading.

Co-meets with ANTHR 3479 .

V. Santiago-Irizarry.

The relationship among culture, language, and thought has been a core concern in many disciplines. Anthropology among them offers a particularly productive perspective for considering this concern. Language and culture are commonly defined as processes that are public and shared yet they also operate within and upon subliminal experiential realms. In this course we shall examine how anthropologists have explored this relationship, which is engendered in the interaction between culture and language as parallel mediating devices for the constitution, interpretation, and expression of human thought and experience.
