ANTH 304 - Language, Gender and Sexual Identities

3 SS
First Semester. This course examines the role of language in constructing gender identities. It privileges a cross-cultural approach, addressing studies done in linguistic anthropology, linguistics, and sociolinguistics. The students consider some of the debates regarding gender differences in language use and explore their grounding in structures of power, authority, and social inequality. The course offers an arena to reflect on the influence that ideologies of language have on practices connected to the representation of sexualities and expression of desire. The format is discussion oriented and students will conduct their own research on the topics addressed in class.
