For an update on these Language 2018 materials, see Language and Raciolinguistics in Intro-to-Anthropology 2021.

These materials were for Intro to Anthropology 2018:

  • Lavenda and Schultz chapter 9 “Why Is Understanding Human Language Important?”
  • “How Language Shapes Thought” by Lera Boroditsky in Scientific American (2011)

This was also the class we discussed “Shakespeare in the Bush” by Laura Bohannan as a bridge from our previous class on Ethnographic Methods.

Living Anthropologically means documenting history, interconnection, and power during a time of global transformation. We need to care for others as we attempt to build a world together. This blog is a personal project of Jason Antrosio, author of Fast, Easy, and In Cash: Artisan Hardship and Hope in the Global Economy.
