Description

If you are interested in issues of globalization and language and/or the role of English in today's world, then this unit is for you. We know that English is now the global language of politics, trade, commerce, media, research, and higher education. In this unit, we examine how these processes impact the English language, how people around the world relate to and adapt the language, and how this impacts the linguistic, pedagogical, and political landscapes.
