IGS718 Gender in Discourse

[3–0, 3 cr.]

This course exposes students to an in-depth survey of gender identity/ies in discourse. Students will be dealing with the complexity of gender representation and construction in a variety of discourse modes (verbal, textual, and visual). Accordingly, this course introduces students to major theoretical and empirical approaches in (critical) discourse analysis. Within its comprehensive coverage, this course focuses on how power relations and structures have been shaping gender identity/ies in discourse contexts such as media, politics, education, law, sexuality, and the workplace.
