                                   The program, from its earliest times, set as its mission the
                                   education of students about the realities of Aboriginal life in
                                   Canada and abroad. The goal was to create a cadre of leaders
                                   and allies who would work over the course of their lifetimes to

                                   As Canada struggles with issues such as Native self-
                                   governance, and land and language rights, the need increases
                                   for university graduates with expertise, wisdom, and insight into
                                   Aboriginal experiences. [...] The School of Native Studies offers

                                    The First Nations Partnership Programs do not start with a
                                    blank slate, but instructors and students are also not

                                  peoples in Canadian society, with special emphasis on the
                                  Hodenosaunee (Iroquoian) and Anishnabwe (Ojibwe, Delaware,
                                  Potawatomi) traditions of southwestern Ontario. Some courses

                                  The program engages political, legal, cultural and linguistic
                                  perspectives on the First Nations, insofar as possible through
                                  the standpoints and voices of Aboriginal people. Native and

                                  What is Environmental Studies? The Faculty of Environmental
                                  Studies (FES), has always answered this question in the
                                  broadest possible way. If "environment" is defined as everything
                                  that surrounds us, then environmental studies is not only about
                                  natural environments, but also about built environments, social
                                  environments, organizational environments, and all of the sets

                                     Etrangères - Langues Etrangères Appliquées (UFR 5) a une
                                     double vocation : d‘une part former des spécialistes de langues,
                                     littératures et civilisations étrangères, d‘autre part accueillir des
                                     spécialistes d‘autres disciplines. En effet, le principe de
                                     pluridisciplinarité régissant cette Université fait que tout cursus
                                     comporte l‘obligation d‘un enseignement en langue. Selon
                                     l‘étudiant et la formation dont il relève, il lui sera proposé un
                                     enseignement dans les langues européennes les plus
                                     pratiquées (allemand, anglais, espagnol, italien, portugais...),

                                     [T]he launching of the Institute in 2002 does have a
                                     contemporary context. The encounter with societies and
                                     cultures outside of Europe and North America has acquired a
                                     new and unpredictable actuality. New forms of globalisation, the
                                     development of a global society with transnational networks and
                                     an all-embracing medialisation all raise new questions about the
                                     universal, the other the foreign and the different. The challenge
                                     of learning from other cultures and revealing the blind-spots of
                                     Euro-America culture via the detour of learning about the other
                                     is part of this contemporary process. Attempts at deescalating
                                     conflicts and catastrophes also need to negotiate between a
                                     necessary degree of intervention in intolerable developments on
                                     the one hand and a hegemonial standardisation on the other.

                                      Africa is characterized by an extraordinarily heterogeneous
                                      language situation. Linguistics is concerned with pursuing and
                                      teaching linguistical-historical linkages and typological
                                      characteristics of languages and language groups. On the other
                                      hand, this necessitates a focus on teaching languages which
                                      are most relevant for communicative use.
                                      African languages with their communicative functions are seen
                                      and treated as expression and means of African culture. Based
http://www2.hu-                       on this assumption, the task of linguistic description and of
berlin.de/asaf/Afrika/en_ling.html    teaching African languages is linked with sociolinguistics.

                                   to as Resource Studies, requires an ability to contend with
                                   typically complex and ill-defined problems. As a result,
                                   Resource Studies issues necessitate an understanding of the

                                    As a developing nation, PNG has been uncritically borrowing
                                    foreign models with the hope of solving its present social and
                                    cultural problems. Such that problems not anticipated were
                                    equally introduced which unfortunately necessitated further
                                    borrowing of models and theories to seemingly counter these
                                    negative social effects. Its natural resources too were exploited
                                    without due consideration of how people are attached to and the
                                    knowledge held over these resources. The upshot of such a
                                    trend is an unfortunate perpetuity of a ‗Dependency Syndrome‘.
                                    While these may be a result of cultural systems in collision, it is
                                    nonetheless long over due that guidance ought to be sought
                                    from onshore theories and knowledge. With relevant intra-

                                    who can competently take their place in the vast field of social
                                    welfare and social development. This competence addresses
                                    the area of human social functioning which is the result of the
                                    interaction between two aspects of living - how people cope with
                                    their life tasks and the demands of their situations. Social Work

                                  It is being increasingly recognised that tourism — the world's
                                  largest and fastest growing industry — needs to be planned,
                                  developed and managed in a sustainable way if it is to avoid
                                  destroying the very environments and communities on which it

                                  Examines both the theoretical issues raised by globalisation and
                                  the variant ways in which different Latin American Societies
                                  have reacted to it. It will also examine the degree to which
                                  contemporary indices of globalisation are continuous with earlier
                                  forms of incorporation of Latin America in the XXIst Century,
                                  and takes as its central concern the ways in which Latin
                                  American development is bound up with global processes. In
                                  addition, students select two specialist courses from a selection
                                  of the economics, environment, history, politics and sociology
http://americas.sas.ac.uk/postgra options listed, as well as writing a dissertation on a topic of their

                                  and specialist knowledge of major issues in the politics of Latin
                                  America. Students engage with a range of theoretical
                                  approaches, and can take options in the fields of comparative
                                  politics, political sociology, political theory and international
                                  politics. The required core course, the Comparative Politics of
                                  Latin America, provides a critical comparative analysis of
                                  contemporary politics in a representative range of countries. In
                                  addition, students select two specialist courses from the politics

                                   academic backgrounds have the opportunity to study a wide
                                   range of topics in anthropology, economics, environment,
                                   history, politics, culture and literature, and sociology of Latin
                                   America. Students choose three courses from those on offer on

                                   is multidisciplinary as well as interdisciplinary. The major helps
                                   the student qualify for graduate work in social sciences, law,

                                   government. Of equal importance are the advantages the major

                                   The tragedies of the twentieth century, the decimation of
                                   European Jewry in the Holocaust and the repression of Jewish
                                   cultural life in the Soviet Union, drastically reduced the number
                                   of Yiddish speakers in the world; linguistic assimilation in the
                                   United States and other countries has meant that few people
                                   today are acquainted with the treasures of Jewish history and
                                   literature written in Yiddish. At Columbia, we hope that the

                                     courses include: the sounds and structures of diverse
                                     languages, ritual language, styles of verbal interaction,
                                     multilingualism, dialects and accents, pidgins and creoles,

                                     communication, in the context of human social and cultural
                                     diversity, past and present. Linguistic Anthropology seeks to
                                     understand the social and cultural foundations of language
                                     itself, while exploring how social and cultural formations are
                                     grounded in linguistic practices. Linguistic anthropologists study
                                     the ways in which people negotiate, contest, and reproduce
                                     cultural forms and social relations through language, and the
                                     ways in which language provides insights into the nature and
                                     evolution of culture and human society. Faculty interests
                                     include: linguistic theory and its application to the analysis of
                                     Native American languages in both North America and Latin

                                     interdisciplinary research center within Indiana University. As
                                     such, the Institute is not a degree-granting entity. Instead,
                                     students apply for graduate admission in the department of their
                                     choosing. Once accepted for graduate study in that department,
                                     the student develops an academic relationship with the Institute.
                                     The Institute has traditionally worked with faculty and students
                                     from the departments of anthropology, linguisitics, history, and
                                     folklore. Courses focusing on Native American topics are also
                                     offered through the English department, the Law School, and

                                   Anthropology is unique and effective among fields that examine
                                   human behavior because of its particularly intensive techniques
                                   of participant-observation research, its use of both qualitative
                                   and quantitative methods, and its ability to bring together a

                                   Native American Studies offers the opportunity to understand
                                   and learn from the history and traditions of the indigenous
                                   peoples of North, Central and South America. Drawing from the
                                   philosophy, politics, social values and arts of Native cultures,
                                   the major will provide you with insight into a diverse population
                                   of people. You will develop the research capabilities and critical
                                   thinking skills to foster a broad understanding of the human

                                   Anthropology is the study of humans in the broadest sense:
                                   biological, sociocultural, and historical. Most undergraduates in
                                   anthropology at UCSB select this major because of the
                                   opportunity it affords them to acquire a sound liberal education.
                                   […] The aim of the anthropology major is threefold: (1) to
                                   prepare for graduate school those students who wish to work
                                   professionally in anthropology; (2) to prepare students for
                                   careers in secondary education or in social work; and (3) to
                                   provide a background in behavioral studies for students who
                                   desire a broad education in either the biological or the social
http://www.anth.ucsb.edu/          sciences.
                                   An emphasis on long-term anthropological fieldwork has been a
                                   hallmark, and a strength, of the Department. All current
                                   members of staff, in addition to their responsibilities to students,
                                   conduct research, which relates both to long-standing
                                   anthropological concerns (e.g. reproduction and the family and

                                   unusual languages, particularly North American Indian
                                   languages, Mesoamerican languages, Asian languages
                                   (especially Chinese, Japanese, and Korean), Himalayan

                                   The IHD program brings together faculty and graduate students
                                   from the departments of Communication, Education,
                                   Linguistics, Psychology, and Sociology who share a common
                                   interest in human development. The emphasis offers special
                                   training in three areas: social-emotional development, cognitive
                                   development, and the development of complex communication
                                   processes, including language acquisition. Courses in the
                                   participating departments provide students with an opportunity
                                   to pursue their interests in diverse areas involving the biological,

                                   The faculty of the Department of Anthropology reflect a range of
                                   overlapping specializations, consistent with the diversity of the
                                   discipline. The 14 full time sociocultural and linguistic
                                   anthropology faculty, along with additional anthropologists in
                                   other departments, are involved in research in Africa, East Asia,
                                   Europe, Latin America and the Caribbean, Oceania, North
                                   America, and Southeast Asia. These regional strengths of the
                                   department are complemented by a number of interdisciplinary
http://www.anthro.uiuc.edu         programs on the UIUC campus.
                                   The American Indian and Native Studies Program (AINSP) is an
                                   interdisciplinary program that focuses on the histories, cultures,
                                   languages, arts, crafts, beliefs, political and social
                                   organizations, economies, geographies, literatures, and
                                   contemporary legal and political issues of Native Americans of
                                   the United States and other indigenous peoples of the western
http://www.uiowa.edu/~ainsp/       hemisphere.
                                   The mission of the Center for Indigenous Nations Studies at the
                                   University of Kansas is to contribute to the survival,
                                   strengthening, self-sufficiency, and mutual support of
                                   Indigenous Peoples within and beyond the borders of the
                                   Americas. Our faculty works closely with students, through a
                                   combination of study, research, and practical experience, to
                                   envision and work from decolonized, cross-cultural, and global
http://www.ku.edu/~insp/           perspectives.
                                    Sociolinguistics and Discourse Analysis examine language use
                                    and language variation in social contexts. Both are concerned
                                    with developing theoretical insights into the ways that situations,
                                    identities and macro-level social, cultural, and political factors
                                    relate to beliefs about language, to language use and to
                                    theories of language. Discourse analysis focuses on the
                                    qualitative and corpus-based analysis of spoken and written
                                    texts, with a particular emphasis on narrative. Sociolinguistics,
                                    which relies on both quantitative and qualitative analysis, covers
                                    a broad range of topics, including bi- and multilingualism,
                                    language contact, language variation and change, language

                                    The University of Michigan's linguistic anthropology subfield
                                    emphasizes the integration of social theory and analysis with
                                    the analysis of linguistic form. We are especially strong in our
                                    engagement with historical issues, such as processes of
                                    standardization in nation-building, the effects of colonialism on
                                    the territorial distribution and social hierarchies among
                                    languages, and the ways in which language and other semiotic

                                   is a dual-degree program in which students study at and receive
                                   degrees from both American University and the United Nations-
                                   affiliated University for Peace in Costa Rica. [...] This two-year
                                   program equips students with the knowledge and skills
http://www.american.edu/academi necessary for managing eco-development issues in a global

                                   The Department's Mission is to achieve and maintain academic

                                   With African culture as its wider research area, the
                                   Department's activities are therefore integral to the cultural
