Languages and Cultures in Contact - LING903

Based in the field of Anthropological Linguistics, this unit investigates language, society and culture. The content and activities of this unit aim to develop an awareness and understanding of the theories and practical implications associated with linguistic diversity, exploring topic areas which include migration, transnationalism, and identity. The focus is on how worldview influences the language choices of a group and how group values, beliefs and practices generate, maintain, and transform norms of interaction within a culture.
