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.
