EDLS 333 - Education, Language, and Culture


3 Credit(s)

This course examines various constructs of the notions of “language” and “culture” in the educational context, the relationship between them, their effect on identity, values, and beliefs as well as their interplay in schools, communities, and society, both in the US and the world. It emphasizes language and culture as a means for knowledge building and explores how social categories relevant to education are linguistically, culturally, and institutionally constructed. The issues are addressed through an interdisciplinary framework, using insights from a variety of fields, including education, behavioral and social sciences, and the arts.
