Description

This is an introductory course on the intersection of language and gender as it relates to Indigenous ways of being. The first half of the course introduces traditional topics related to language and gender, such as gendered pronouns, different ways of speaking by/to men and women, and other ways language is used as a social and cultural cue to differentiate between the sexes. The second half of the course views these topics through a Native lens. What are some Native words and their meanings that describe genders? Do pronouns in Native languages always express gender, as in English? Do some Native languages have different ways of speaking for men vs. women? The course will be seminar-style, with weekly readings and discussion, followed by a final paper and presentation at the end of the course. Students will develop a broader perspective of the ways gender is encoded in language by learning about other languages, especially those indigenous to North America.
