EN 260 ENGLISH AS A GLOBAL LANGUAGE

This course examines the close connections between language and identity, as they play out in economic, political, and cultural exchange. Seeking out both the global within English and the signs of English around the globe, we will read immigrant memoirs, tackle concerns over language survival or revival, and explore the types and mechanisms of language contact. As part of an interdisciplinary learning community, this course considers the broad theme of “cultural encounters.”
