New course for Spring 2010

Hello all,

Hope your quickly-waning break has been wonderful and relaxing! Professor Paul Kockelman will be offering a new course next semester:

The Linguistic Anthropology of Artificial Languages: Meaning and Information, Interpretation and Computation, Language and Media

Anthropology 4325
Monday, 11:00-12:50
Altschul Hall 303

Here’s a short abstract for the course:

This course is about artificial languages through the frame of linguistics and anthropology, with a focus on the digital and computational mediation of meaning. In some sense, it is about human-based significance in relation to machine-based sieving—with a focus on computer languages, architectures, algorithms, and interfaces. It is intended for both graduate students and advanced undergraduate students.
