In the first part of the course, entitled “Language and Culture”, students explore how language develops in specific cultural contexts, how it impacts the world and the ways in which language shapes both individual and group identity. Students will pay particular attention to the role of language in constructing meaning and understanding of particular issues in the world. The second part of the course is entitled "Literature in Cultural Contexts". Through the close reading of literary texts, students in this course will consider the relationship of literature to issues at large such as gender, power and identity.
