This course provides a survey of current issues of bilingualism in the Spanish-speaking world with a special focus on bilingualism in the U.S. Using the tools of sociolinguistics, the course examines patterns of language use, acquisition, and attrition, regional characteristics of U.S. Spanish, contact phenomena with English (and other regional languages), as well as contact between varieties of Spanish. In our discussion of the social aspects of U.S. Spanish we also study attitudes, identity, and phenomena related to the use of Spanish in public spaces and in the education system.
This course carries CASE SH Social & Historical and DUS2 Diversity in the US credit.
