Short content

The main objective of the course is to reevaluate mostly implicit and/or discursive conventions of mediating gender signifiers through language. The findings of sociolinguistics shall be amended by cross-cultural evidence, and elucidated through examining the underlying context by assessing differences between sex and gender, androcentrism, heteronormativity, gender performativity, etc. The aim of the course is multidisciplinary analysis of the interplay of gender, language and power. Language is analysed as a socio-political phenomenon that is socially embedded and structures other social phenomena. Language shapes interrelated discourses of gender and social power. Topics: construction of gender politics through language: gendered language of media and politics; gendered language of growing up and education: formation of gender identities; gendered language of work and organisational power; gendered language of art and science; gendered language of everyday life; language changes and resistance
