SS-368 Language, Culture, and Discourse Theory

3 Credits

This is an interdisciplinary course, which blends linguistics, anthropology, sociology, philosophy, and political thought for the purpose of exploring the concept of 'language' and its role in the social sciences. Moving through the intellectual traditions of structuralism, social anthropology, Marxism, phenomenology, psychoanalysis, and poststructuralism, students develop an understanding of what discourse is and how it functions in social life.
