For Hartwick Intro to Anthropology there were two readings:
- Lavenda & Schultz chapter 9 “Why Is Understanding Human Language Important?” (273-297)
- “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.
For notes, please see the e-mailed PowerPoint (also available on D2L).
