SPN 3 Spanish Linguistics and Culture.

Focuses on the study of language as a sign of cultural identity and as a social marker. Although the focus is on Spanish, the general goal is to develop the students' ability to think critically about the connection between language and the social and cultural contexts in which it develops and exists. Students will learn to collect and interpret linguistic data, discuss historical events and conditions that have determined the evolution of Spanish dialects and the establishment of a standard, and evaluate current linguistic conflicts in the Spanish-speaking world.
