SPAN 4420 - Spanish Sociolinguistics

This course will provide students with a survey of Spanish sociolinguistics which is the study of how language and social factors interact. Students will be introduced to themes such as how age, socioeconomic status, and gender influence our language; how languages vary across the Spanish-speaking world; what happens to languages that come into contact with each other; bilingualism and Spanish in the US and as a heritage language here; how our attitudes toward a speaker’s language influence our perception of him or her; the  relationship between language and identity; and factors influencing how policies and laws involving language are passed. Class conducted in Spanish.

Prerequisite: MLAN 2010 and either SPAN 2002 or SPAN 2006
