Days and Times- TRAVEL
May 11-25, 2020
This program is a companion course to HISP-S 495, Language and cultural diversity of Southern Spain, and builds on many of the same themes (e.g. foundations of sociolinguistics, sociolinguistics of Southern Spain, language and gender, linguistic landscape, etc.). Upon successful completion of the semester course (S495), students will travel to Murcia, Spain (X395), and conduct research at the University of Murcia as well as in the community, focusing on the linguistic landscape of Murcia and the linguistic differences between genders. Using conceptual knowledge from S495, students will discover how language is used through city signs, paying attention to official vs. non-official signs, language used, etc., while understanding the historical and demographic configuration of the city. Furthermore, students will carry out data collection in order to complete a perception project examining language attitudes of Murcian Spanish speakers. Students will learn about gender differences by conducting a qualitative analysis of interactions between female speakers from Murcia. Finally, they will also visit historical and touristic landmarks not only in the region of Murcia, but also within other regions in Southern Spain.
Must have completed HISP-S 326 or its equivalent; must be enrolled in HISP-S 495, Spring 2020.
