Last section! Questions? tylers at stanford Tyler Schnoebelen
The big questions • How do we use language to construct and maintain the gender order? • How do people use linguistic resources in the interest of their own gender ideologies? • How are dominant ideologies reinforced in day-to-day talk?
The big themes • Gender binary • Is it real? • How does it get “reproduced” (perpetuated)? • What are the consequences (good and bad)? • Sexuality • What’s the connection between gender and sexuality? • Other ways of seeing the world • Presupposition • Metaphor • Categories/labels • Grammatical gender • Speech activities • Politeness • Performativity • Style • The linguistic market (global vs. local—what’s that mean?) • Speech production/perception (including up-talk)
“One slide of vocab” • Indexicality • Erasure • Discourse • Heteronormative • Positive/negative face • Positive/negative politeness • Intersubjectivity • Agency • Iterability
Build a model • Sketch out the factors that go into “making meaning” • Which ones? • How are they related? • What’s the role of individual identity? Social relationships? Conscious choices vs. unconscious ones?
How to prepare • Oh ohoh, make sure you have done 20 comments! • What worked/didn’t work last time? • Look over your notes as well as the slides • My hope is that the section slides will help you prep • Send Kyuwon and me your questions • I may be a little slow to respond because I’ll be out of town • Same format as mid-term (just more questions) • Individual multiple choice and T/F questions are each worth less than on midterm • Do a quick outline for the short essay • What points do you want to hit, THEN start writing • Make your answer clear in the first sentence and then give supporting info after that
