LGCS114 PO - Linguistic Discrimination

When Offered: Fall 2018.
Instructor(s): N. Holliday
Credit: 1

This course is an introduction to the ways in which language can be used as a tool of empowerment or disempowerment for individuals and groups.

In this class, students will learn about how prejudice manifests itself in language ideologies, social practices, and public policy. Students will produce their own research projects analyzing an aspect of linguistic discrimination and proposing strategies for addressing this type of inequality and educating the public about the role of language in discrimination. This class will be taught in the Inside-Out Prison Exchange format, alongside incarcerated students at the California Rehabilitation Center. Letter grade only.
