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 Women's Studies 3213 .
Prerequisite: Anthropology 2300 or 1300 or Women's Studies 1000
