Language and Culture

A study of select topics related to world languages and the cultures where they are spoken through various media, including literary and non-literary texts, music, film, plastic and performing arts, and guest speakers from various disciplines across campus. A deliberate effort will be made to design course materials in ways that are at once broad (reflecting historical, geographic, linguistic, and cultural spectra) and profound (allowing students to focus on areas of personal/academic interest to them). Also, the course will treat world languages and cultures in a non-linear (“unit-based” or “compartmentalized”) fashion in order to avoid conceiving of them as insular or unrelated entities and to demonstrate ways in which languages and cultures interconnect in the human experience as a whole.

NOTE:  Enrollment in this section is restricted to members of the Language and Culture Residential Learning Community.
