This graduate seminar provides an opportunity to explore approaches to, and research about, the development of L2 pragmatic competence in naturalistic, classroom, and online settings. Students will each conduct their own original exploratory study in this area. The schedule is designed collaboratively between the students and professor, with assigned readings and student-selected "free-choice" readings based on each student's research and teaching interests.
