ESL 2315 - Gender Differences in Language Use

Credits: 3 hrs
The course will introduce students to the study of the relationship between language as used by women and language as used by men as well as the culural/social expectations of such use. Students will be introduced to investigative tools they need in order to be able to conduct their independent exploration of problematic areas, such as, language power and women’s status, female vs. male style in communication and interaction, language and gender stereotypes, miscommunication across genders, promotion of gender equality in language use, and ungenderized language.
