The provides an increased appreciation of how different languages and narratives serve as different prisms for interrogating social (and even physical) reality, having considered a wide array of examples in class and in their own reflection. The main themes of this course are the reshaping of social space-time as a result of innovations in human interaction and linguistic production, as well as the relationship between language, mind and reality.
