Examination of linguistic conflict and rights, as well as centrality of language rights to human rights and personal/cultural identity. Basic facts without language related to identify, culture, attitudes, dialects, bilingualism. Case studies (local, national, international) with particular attention to nationalism, language revitalization, language planning.
Ethnolinguistic factors are becoming increasingly apparent in global conflicts in the 21st century, and must be taken into account alongside religious, ideological, economic, environmental, and resource bases of conflicts. Ethnolinguistic nationalism is resurgent in the face of globalism, and centuries' old ethnolinguistic rivalries of Africa, the Middle East, and South Asia (temporarily papered over by European colonialism and UN imposed post-colonial borders) have once again come bursting forth. This course is intended to provide such a perspective on human conflict.
Linguistics offers concurrence for the course changes for (i.e. cross-listing of) POLI 240/LING 240.
Director, Linguistics Program
LING 240 also will need to submitted to be approved as Carolina Core.
Thank you for submitting your proposal to the Committee on Curricula & Courses. We are moving your proposal forward to the Faculty Senate. It is recommended someone from the department attend the next Faculty Senate meeting in case there are questions from the floor regarding your proposal.
The committee did notice one issue with the proposal. In the syllabus you did not include a Disabilities statement. The Center for Teaching Excellence provides useful information and example syllabi statements related to academic integrity, attendance policy, and disability services (see https://sc.edu/about/offices_and_divisions/cte/teaching_resources/coursedevelopment/example_syllabus_statements/). Please make this change in the syllabus the next time the course is taught.
We appreciate your patience and commitment to undergraduate and graduate education.
