LING 2400 V11 - Analyzing Discourse: Text and Talk In Context
Summer Session I, May 31 - June 30, 2022
Online: MTWTh, 01:00PM - 04:00PM

During this course students will acquire basic knowledge and skills for analyzing different types of discourse, including political debates, advertisements, and media texts, in order to reveal the underlying ideas, values and opinions of language users. We will explore how language can be used to subtly convey ideas, ideologies, and value and we will focus on uncovering how language and discourse construct identities, and produce, or reproduce, stereotypical and/or xenophobic perspectives.
