MES 16.03 Curses, Compliments, and Secrets: Verbal Behavior in the Middle East

This course in anthropology and ethnography of language illustrates how Middle Eastern cultures employ language to construct and reflect values, identities and institutions, to create relationships and project personal status, and to perform actions (such as ending a phone call, apologizing, paying compliments and negotiating business deals). Particular attention will be paid to the language of health and healing. No prior knowledge of a particular language or culture is assumed. Open to all classes.

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.
