LINGUIST 397S - Narratives of Migration

Stories of migration captivate us because they touch on universally important themes: home, family, belonging, identity, pain, loss. In this course, we will explore narratives, or stories, of migration, as told by refugees and immigrants from across the world, through different media: written, spoken, photographed, and constructed digitally on social media. This course approaches narratives of migration primarily from the perspective of sociocultural linguistics and discourse analysis, but we will refer to other scholarly traditions as well. This is a Service-Learning course: students will engage in a mentoring relationship with an immigrant student in a Durham high school. Instructor: Baran
