MLL 413 - Language, Gender & Culture

(3.00)
In Language, Gender and culture, students gain an in-depth understanding of how gender and language are integrated into the fabric of cultures and societies and how sociocultural contexts give meaning to linguistic practices and to gender categories. Students will examine and evaluate a diverse body of literature and scholarship from the fields of linguistics, anthropology, gender studies, and sociology that bear on these issues. Critical attention will be paid to understanding the roles of language and gender in the U.S. context, especially with regard to the U.S. social institutions of education and the media; we will also explore relationships between language and gender in a range of other Western and non-Western cultures. Students will apply what they have learned in the course to final projects that may be research-based or outreach-based. Recommended preparation is one of the following: GWST 100 , GWST 200 , LING 360 



Components: Lecture
Same as Offered: GWST 413  , GWST 613, LLC 613, MLL 613
