Gender and Language

HUM209 (Liberal Arts) Gender and Language 3 hrs. 3 crs. This course will introduce students to a linguistic-anthropological perspective on the relationship between Language and Gender. We will analyze how language emerges from, reproduces, and sometimes challenges gender ideologies and gendered practices in all societies. We will also consider how other aspects of an individual's identity, such as race, ethnicity, class, age, and sexual orientation, articulate with gender in linguistic interactions. This course may be offered in a face-to-face, hybrid, or asynchronous online format. Preq: ENG 125. This is a Writing Intensive course. [Flexible Core: Individual and Society]
