GEW 5595r/ GEW4591r: Language and Gender
Instructor: Prof. Tatjana Soldat-Jaffe
Office: Diffenbaugh 308

Class meetings: Tue/Thur: 3:05pm-6:20pm
Classroom: DIF 116
Any behavior in language studies is always situated in certain contexts and cannot be regarded as isolated events. In opposition to sex as a category that defines men and women biologically, gender is a social category in language studies; we negotiate gender through interaction. “Doing gender” is undertaken by men and women and is studied through psychological, cultural, and social differences. Societal norms and evaluations as well as power structures in society have an impact on language use. How is language socialized? Is there such a thing as ‘women’s and men’s style’? And how do genders act and are conceived across languages and cultures? Does gender manifest differently in German? This course will study gender as a variable in language as an interlingual and intralingual approach.
