MW 11:30 am -12:45 pm
Professor Johannes Evelein
 
This course (taught in English) starts from the premise that all language acts are culturally based. The main topics of the course are the history of languages; linguistics; literary criticism; cultural criticism; and the translated text. Questions we will explore are: what is language, how do we acquire it, and what relationship does it have to culture? What does the nature vs. nurture debate mean for language? What is the interface between (literary) narrative, language, and culture? What happens when a literary text is translated from one language into another? Does it matter? Students will have a chance to do individualized work that bears upon their own language of study. The course features regular guest lectures by faculty from a range of languages and fields.
