ANTH658 - DISCOURSE RSRCH SEM

Examination of current theories and methods in the study of discourse, including verbal and non-verbal communication. Each student conducts an ethnographic or historical study of a discursive practice, culminating in a class presentation and term paper. The first half of the course focuses on the study of discursive interaction in small scale face to face encounters between individuals, including methods of data collection, transcription, and analysis. The second half takes up public discourses which involve many social actors, are linked to widespread social practices, and result in the coordination of large-scale patterns of action, belief, and value in society.
