AN311 – Language in Culture and Mind: Cognitive Anthropology
Explores cognitive anthropology, which is concerned with the relationship between language and mind, how cultural worlds are created and structured through language, and how individual languages shape the attitudes and behaviors of their speakers. We will consider both potential universals in human thought as expressed through language and the diversity of worldviews and behaviors between language communities. (Not offered 2020-21).
Prerequisite: Anthropology 105 or 256 or 258 or consent of instructor.
