LANG7650 Advanced Seminar in Language and Gender (3 units)
The course offers an introduction to how gender relates to language in diverse ways and in diverse contexts, and develops students’ research skills in this area. A wide range of current issues in the academic field of language and gender will be presented, and different approaches to analysing the impact of gender in both spoken and written texts will be discussed. Cultural variation will also be in focus. The emphasis will be on developing the students’ awareness and critical thinking of gender in their own experiences of language use, as well as applying their knowledge to different social contexts. Besides working on assigned materials, students will be asked to collect and analyse their own data, using the theoretical frameworks from the course.
