Primary Instructor:

This course will explore reggaetón culture through the study of language. A background in linguistics is not required (though it will be helpful) and enthusiasm for reggaetón music is also helpful. We will be examining this Latino-street-culture-turned-global-culture through various lenses of linguistic analysis. We will seek to answer: What is the relationship between language, ethnicity, and identity in the reggaetón community? How does language use within the reggaetón community confirm or challenge our knowledge of Spanish Language and race? How have other global languages and cultures been impacted by reggaetón culture? What can we gain by examining the communicative modes and codes of this dynamic cultural community?

This course counts as elective credit for the Spanish minor.
