LING 381 - Language and Gender

Description
Gender roles are dynamic, yet culturally bound. They are determined as a group, yet performed by individuals. These roles are products of historical, sociological, geographic, economic, and linguistic phenomena. All of these contribute to the development of a culture, and all are encoded and reflected in the language used. Students will discover how these phenomena work together in the social contexts of various cultures, with a particular focus on the role language plays in creating and reporting gender roles. May not be taken for credit by students who have received credit for ID 370M or WMST 300B. Enrollment restricted to students with Junior or Senior standing. Requirement Designation: DD - UDGE Social Science.
