WGSS 325. Language, Gender, and Sexuality. 3 Hours S.

This class bridges cultural and linguistic anthropology by exploring the varied and sometimes surprising relationships among language, gender, and sexuality. We examine earlier perspectives focused on biological sex and gender difference and more recent work, including queer theory and views of gender and sexuality as enacted through language. This class will explore two long-standing substantive and ethical debates in the field: whether language itself is sexist and whether each gender uses language differently. Students will investigate how gender is performed through language and influenced by social class, ethnicity, sexuality, and transgender and other gender-transgressive identities. (Same as ANTH 325.) Prerequisite: ANTH 320/LING 320 or ANTH 321/LING 321 suggested. LEC.
