NEW112H1: Language Freedom and Power

Hours: 
12L/24S

How do we imagine a balance between the need for communication, freedom of expression, and protection for marginalized groups? This course considers how language shapes and is shaped by the relations of power not only in such sites as colonies, nations and institutions, but also in popular culture and how we communicate online. It explores the key role of language in activism and youth cultures and allows students to focus on an issue of particular interest. Restricted to newly-admitted first-year students.  Not eligible for CR/NCR.
