ML 311 - Language and Identity

(3.00 cr.)

Language both determines and is an expression of identity. The connection between the construction of social identity and language use within the context of the United States is investigated. Students explore how discourse is structured to shape the identity of various ethnic groups (e.g., Black, Native, Asian, and Latin Americans), examining common language myths and evaluating the language stereotypes and attitudes reflected in books, film, newspapers, advertisements, etc.
