Do men and women use language differently? What about LGBT speakers and straight speakers? How do people use language to perform their gender or sexual orientation? If there are differences between groups, what causes them and how can we study them? In an inclusive, informal class, we will share experiences, conduct exploratory projects, and look at some key studies from a range of places and situations around the world. The course is assessed via exam, quizzes, and participation in discussion and projects.
This course assumes no prior familiarity with linguistics or gender studies. There are no course pre-requisites.
