LING-343 Women, Men, and Language
Course Goals & Description
This course will help you develop connections between gender and language use and to treat them both as objects of study. We will review the major theoretical approaches to language and gender and examine how each can shed light on cases of gendered linguistic practice. You will develop the ability to thoughtfully evaluate research in the field from the perspective of both the linguist and the gender theorist, at times reconciling tension or bridging gaps between the two. Assignments will emphasize your ability to link theoretical points arising from readings and class discussions to linguistic patterns you observe in the real world.
