Course Description: This course provides a critical overview of aspects of language use in social context. Sociolinguistics is traditionally the study of language in social context, including ways that language reflects economic class, gender, ethnicity, geography, and other important social variables. More recently, sociolinguistics has also examined the organization of social life through language. How are the identities and practices of individuals, groups, and institutions formed, sustained, and transformed through language? This course investigates such questions, using a variety of research methods, in order to explore the implicit yet fundamental role of language in society. The course emphasizes the interdisciplinary study of language, drawing on related research in sociology, cultural studies, policy studies, and discourse analysis.
