Language and the Body: Embodied Communication in Cross-cultural Perspective

Anthropology 321 or Anthropology 243

Usual Description

This course introduces students to anthropological perspectives on embodied communication, including cross-cultural studies of speech, gesture, and sign languages in human societies, as well as natural and experimental studies of non-human animal communication. Throughout the course we will question the Cartesian division between mind and body that has informed many disciplines? conceptions of language, while raising questions about the nature of language and personhood. Field trips required.
