課程概述

This course is built upon the “Introduction to Linguistics” course, which gives the students basic linguistic analysis skills. In this new course, “Gender and Language: A Feminist Approach to Language,” students will examine the functions of language from a feminist perspective in terms of the interrelation between gender and language. While examining the issue, students will increase both in their knowledge of feminist linguistics and gender theories. Students will read articles which related to these topics and they will also have to work on a research project in this area. After finishing this course, students will have not only a better understanding of the issue of gender and language, they will also have a better idea of how the gender differences in general.
