AMES 40.08 Language, Conflict and Nation-Building in Asia and the Middle East

How do multilingual societies function? Who speaks which language to whom and why? Is 'one state one language' an economically or politically rational policy and how can language and literacy be planned? Why do languages thrive or decline -- and what of language oppression and language rights? What role do religion, ethnicity, gender etc have in all of this?   The major focus will be on China, Japan, Korea, Israel, Iran and the Arab states, and students will be able to select these or other Asian/Middle Eastern societies for their final paper. No prior knowledge of a particular language or culture is assumed.

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.
