Course Description
In this course students examine multiple relationships between communication and gender. The class emphasizes how communication creates gender and gendered power dynamics and how communicative patterns reflect, sustain and alter social conceptions of gender. We will focus on how we produce gendered communicative acts in our speech, writing, media, everyday life and through our bodies.
Course Goals and Learning Outcomes
Upon completion of this course, students should be able to:
A. Recognize how gender is socially construction through different communication practices and in different communication contexts
B. Distinguish how the relationship between gender, sexuality, communication and power impact our day-to-day life.
C. Define different theories of gender and how it is learned, performed and resisted.
D. Establish a sense of themselves as communicative agents in relation to gender, sexuality, intersectionality, and the responsibilities of public citizenry.
