ENGL 27001 - The Politics of Language

Course Credit: 1
THE POLITICS OF LANGUAGE How do grammar and language norms reflect social, racial and national identities? How and why are some forms of English privileged over others? How do speakers and writers use language to delineate social and political groups? This course will seek to answer these questions by examining the connections between language, power, identity and culture. [AH]
