ANTH 9 Language and Culture

This course introduces major themes and thinkers in the development of the study of language and culture in Anthropology and Linguistics. The course begins with theories of the linguistic sign and then explores how these have been applied to the study of sound and meaning. We ask questions about the connections between grammar and cognition, language diversity and cultural variation, and the role of language use in the production of social life and cultural worlds.

SOC

The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
