Ideology and ideologies have become a core concern in the anthropology of language. This concern focuses on how language ideology articulates with sociocultural practices to inform human experience beyond language’s expressive and communicative functions. As asserted by pioneers in the field, such as Schieffelin, Kroskrity, and Woolard in their seminal work during the 1980s and 1990s: rather than just epiphenomenal, language ideology is a crucial link mediating human acts and institutions with linguistic practices. This course examines these articulations within the context of Latinx communities, their linguistic practices, and the linguistic ideologies that inform their sense of identity vis-à-vis those dominant in the predominantly English-speaking U.S. society.
