グローバル教養科目(Sociolinguistics in a Global Society)

Sociolinguistics in a Global Society
【Please note that you are assessed on a Pass/Fail basis in this course.】

Students are welcome to this class where we will learn about and discuss issues surrounding global society and language. Sociolinguistics analyzes the many and diverse ways in which language and society entwine. It studies how language affects, and is affected by, issues such as identity, gender, ethnicity, education, class, sexuality, power, and culture. These are all areas in which students and instructors will have had experiences and this course aims for us to be able to share these experiences, as well as our thoughts and opinions on these topics.
A multiplicity of languages and the socio cultural and socio historical backgrounds behind those language users will influence policy making as we try to achieve the goals set out by the 17 SDGs. Therefore, it is vital for us to have a good understanding of the role of language in society and how an understanding of it can aid us in achieving our global development objectives. An example of this is language diversity, particularly in an age of vulnerable populations across the globe. Understanding the linguistic diversity of these populations can help us make decisions in a linguistically plural manner that is inclusive.
By the conclusion of this course, it is hoped that you will have obtained knowledge of sociolinguistics and the role language plays in sectors relevant to global society through readings and class discussions. You will have ample opportunity to share your thoughts and opinions on these issues as we gain a collective understanding of how language will enable us to work towards the SDGs and navigate obstacles along the way.
