WGST 3213 Anthropology of Language, Sex, and Gender

3 hours; 3 credits

Language, as a human universal, is uniquely available for defining, maintaining, and enacting the cultural categories of gender and sexual orientation. This course offers a cross-cultural perspective on the relationships between language and gender, which helps us understand both how we use language in gender-specific ways and how gender is enacted through language practices. This course is the same as Anthropology 3310.

Prerequisite: Anthropology *1001 [1] or Women's or Gender Studies 1001 [12].
