ANTH 306 - Perspective on Literacy

Semester Offered: First Semester
Credits (Range): 3 hours
Attribute: 3SS, CD

This class argues that literacies must be understood in the socio-cultural and historical contexts in which they are used, as we examine the ways in which they are linked to social relationships, technologies, talk, and actions. In particular, we will address questions of authority and dominance, through an exploration of the role of literacy, nationalism, and education in class stratification and the formation of gender, racial, and ethnic identities. We will also consider the significance of emerging and alternative literacies. Enrollment Limit: 25
Instructor: E. Hoffman
