LGCS 166 PZ - Topics in Sociolinguistics: Gender in Films

Explores advanced topics in sociolinguistics. We will look at representations of ethnicity in the media, particularly comedians and their stand up routines (Margaret Cho, Chris Rock). We will use analysis of language variables to explore how these performances construct identity and reflect ideologies about race and ethnicity in the US.

Prerequisite(s): Ling 10 and a sociolinguistics class such as 112 or 116.

For up-to-date information on current course offerings and details, please refer to the Pitzer class schedule on MyCampus2 Portal.
