ANTH 117 PZ -Language and Power

Institution: Pitzer

Description: What is power and how is it reflected in and created through talk and writing? For example, who takes control of a conversation? Do women do more conversational work than men? How do immigrants feel about non-native speakers using their language? How are ideological differences reflected in the way “facts” are reported? When is language discriminatory? We will examine the theories of Bourdieu, Bakhtin and Foucault through our own analyses of power dynamics in language use.

Prerequisite(s): Please check course schedule for requirements.
