Module overview

This module will introduce you to the study of language, culture and communication, and the ways in which they are connected. Language is understood as a form of social action that allows us to carry out everyday activities through our communicative practices (construct images of ourselves, make friends, ask for information, convince others, etc.). Communicative practices shape our world, but at the same time are shaped by the different instances that form that world (cultural knowledge, institutions, society, social groups, norms, etc).
