Language, Power And Politics (Fall 2010 Syllabus), Adam Hodges 2009 Carnegie Mellon University

Language, Power And Politics (Fall 2010 Syllabus), Adam Hodges

Adam Hodges

In this course, we will examine the integral role language plays in politics; and, more generally, how power operates in linguistic practices and political interaction. As we critically examine how language is used to articulate, maintain and subvert relations of power in society, emphasis will be placed on language in the media, the political rhetoric associated with war, and the construction of ‘truth’ in politics. We will also consider the role of ethnographic analysis in aiding our understandings of how social actors use and (re)interpret political language. The course will provide you with a foundation for understanding how language ...


Language In Society (Winter 2010 Syllabus), Adam Hodges 2009 Stanford University

Language In Society (Winter 2010 Syllabus), Adam Hodges

Adam Hodges

In this course, we will examine how language and society affect each other. We will place a significant focus on language use in our own society to explore regional and social differences in speech. We will examine the attitudes and ideologies people have about languages, language varieties, and their speakers (e.g. issues of prestige and stigma). We will explore how speakers use language to construct identities and interact with different audiences. And we will examine how language itself often becomes a political issue (e.g. in debates over language and education). The course will use a mixture of lectures ...

Between Text And Film: A Contextual Bifurcation In Feliz Ano Velho, Andrew M. Ray 2009 University of Tennessee - Knoxville

Between Text And Film: A Contextual Bifurcation In Feliz Ano Velho, Andrew M. Ray

Andrew M. Ray

The present study problematizes the results in character development due to differences in the use of historical and amorous contexts between the text, Feliz Ano Velho (1982), and its film adaptation, Feliz ano vehlo: uma adaptação livre da obra de Marcelo R. Paiva. Whereas Marcelo Rubens Paiva (1959) constructs a textual mosaic of life experiences based on historical and political frames of reference within his discourse, the film version of Feliz Ano Velho (1987), directed by Roberto Gervitz (1957), utilizes relationships between genders as the foundation of the story. The historical-amorous contextual hierarchy established in the text is thus inverted ...

Using Ning For Conversation Partner Networks, Krista Bittenbender 2009 University of South Florida

Using Ning For Conversation Partner Networks, Krista Bittenbender

Krista Bittenbender Royal

Providing opportunities for conversation practice is one way that an IEP can help students improve their English as well as enhance their engagement in the language learning process. However, matching individual language learners to fluent English speakers can be difficult and time consuming. This workshop will introduce participants involved in setting up such interactions to Ning, a free online social networking platform which can facilitate the creation of individualized networks. Participants will gain insights into how one IEP used Ning to connect ELLs to university students interested in having conversation partners.

Acquisition Of Spanish Gender Agreement In Two Learning Contexts: Study Abroad And At Home, Christina Isabelli

Christina Isabelli

The goal of this study is to describe the acquisition rate for gender acquisition in Spanish and to show whether individual variability and language contact may affect this rate. The participants were intermediate second language Spanish (first language English) learners in the study abroad and at-home contexts over a 4-month period. The participants received grammaticality judgment tests coded for morphological class of the modified noun as well as attributive and predicative adjectives. Data were also collected on social behavior and language contact in Spanish and English in order to explain data outcome. The findings suggest that no difference exists between ...
