MLL 413 - Language, Gender & Culture

(3.00)
In Language, Gender and Sexuality, students gain an in-depth understanding of how language, gender, and sexuality are integrated into the fabric of cultures and societies and how sociocultural contexts give meaning to linguistic practices, to categories of gender and sexuality, and to the construction of gendered, sexual, and other identities.. Students will examine and evaluate a diverse body of scholarship from linguistics, anthropology, gender and sexuality studies, and sociology. Critical attention will be paid to understanding the roles of language, gender and sexuality in the U.S. context, especially with regard to education and the media; we will also explore relationships between language, gender, and sexuality in the range of other Western and non-Western cultures. Students will apply what they have learned in the course to final research projects.
