FYSP 137 - Literacy and Literacies

Semester Offered: First Semester
Full Course
Credits: 4 credits
Attribute: 4SS, WINT

What counts as literacy? Do reading and writing automatically transform individual minds and broader social structures? This class addresses such questions through anthropological case studies focusing on texts drawn from a wide range of geographical, cultural, and historical settings. In so doing, we will show that the nature and effects of literacies cannot be understood separately from the broader contexts in which they are embedded. Field trip(s) required.
