ANTH 003 PZ - Language, Culture & Society


How speech and writing reflect and create social and cultural differences (and universals). We will consider factors that can lead to miscommunication between speakers with different cultural expectations-including speakers who seem to share the same language but use it very differently, whether language shapes thought, how social ideologies and relations of status and power are reflected in language use and the politics of language use (e.g., who decides that a particular language variety is “standard”).

For up-to-date information on current course offerings and details, please refer to the Pitzer class schedule on MyCampus2 Portal.
