Description
LANGUAGE, GENDER AND SEXUALITY
The course considers the ways in which linguistic patterns are sensitive to the social categories of gender and sexuality, including intersectional categories such as race, class, and age, and the role of power and privilege in these patterns. The main questions considered are: How does language categorize the gender/sexuality world in both grammar and interaction? How do speakers display, create, and orient to gender, sexuality, and desire in interaction? How and why do people display different ways of speaking based on their gender/sexual identities?
