Course Overview

This seminar format course offers a broad introduction to the study of the various ways linguists apply their work through engagement with communities outside of academics. We will consider what makes linguistic work ”applied”: where applied linguistic research questions come from, who participates in applied linguistics, how we use and share our research knowledge, and what kinds of engagement with wider communities are possible. The goal of the course is to better understand how we can apply our own linguistic knowledge and approaches in order to engage ever more deeply with deaf communities.

Prerequisite or Co-requisites: For UG students – LIN 301, 302; or permission of instructor; for GRAD students – permission of instructor.
