Analyzing the Language of Bias
Learn about the systematic principles underlying linguistic expressions of bias. The course is based both on existing academic research in the fields of linguistic anthropology and sociolinguistics (which I have taught at Berkeley, Northwestern, and UCLA) and on original research done on language and discrimination in the workplace.
