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
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.
