ANTH 450 - Endangered Languages and Language Revitalization
This course provides an overview of the causes of language loss and attempts to revitalize indigenous languages that are in danger of no longer being spoken. Students will develop a broad knowledge of the issues that confront minority language communities, particularly Native American communities, who want to maintain and/or restore their indigenous languages and cultural practices. Students will make observational site visits to local Cherokee language revitalization programs and events.
