Transcript Title: LANGUAGE & IDENTITY 
UC QTR Units - Division: 6.0 - Upper Division 
Course Description: This course examines how we use language to perform our own identities, to recognize others’ identity performances, and to represent identity behaviors in speech and writing. Students read contemporary research and theory in the fields of socio linguistics and linguistic anthropology to gain the theoretical tools and research methods for describing and analyzing language behaviors linked to identity. Topics to be covered include language ideology, critical race theory, ethnography, and discourse analysis with the goal of enabling self-reflection about students’ own language attitudes and identity practices. Students produce preliminary ethnographically-informed research and writing by collecting and examining original data in this domain. They formulate a relevant research question and use one or more of the following methods of data collection and analysis to answer their question: participant observation, sociolinguistic interview, transcription, discourse analysis, and ethnographic writing. Students report on these analyses in spoken and written English appropriate for the fields of study introduced here. Lectures and tutorials are interactive requiring participation in games and game-derived elements as practice-based research for understanding key course concepts.
