Session 1B: "Languages and Cultures Across the Curriculum"
This panel explores ways in which cultures have dealt with socio-political issues, ranging from construction of gender and sexual orientation to linguistic and cultural expressions of national identity. The highlights include:
- The positions of women within Roman social and legal culture;
- The integration of language and culture in the Chinese language curriculum;
- The complex origins, transformations, and effects of fashion and cuisine in contemporary Martinique;
- German women’s experiences since 1848 as an illustration of how particular German words and concepts form cultural perspectives and translate into laws; and
- Race and nation in Puerto Rican folklore in Franz Boas and J. Alden Mason’s collection of oral riddles, poetry and folkloric stories.
