JWST 214 Language and Cultural Diversity in the USA 3.0 Credits

This course will explore the history and current dynamics of language-based cultural diversity in the USA. Through an examination of communication patterns of men and women, language diversity of African Americans, and the cultural production of various immigrant groups, we will explore the predominance of a rich array of languages and cultures pertaining to most periods of American history. The Yiddish language-based immigrant culture of American Jews will be treated as a case study, dwelling on the rich Yiddish literature created, as well as language-based cultural institutions, such as the press, theater, radio, klezmer music, and film.
