Japanese is considered to be a gendered language in the sense that certain linguistic forms are associated with gender. Male characters in Japanese animation often use boku or ore to refer to themselves, while female characters often use watashi or atashi. When translated into Japanese, Hermione Granger (a female character in Harry Potter series) ends sentences with soft-sounding forms, while Harry Potter and his best friend Ron use more assertive forms. Do these fictional representations reflect reality? How did gendered language come about? Are Japanese women and men always expected to sound feminine/masculine? How do people who do not align their identity with femininity or masculinity deal with gendered forms? These are some of the questions discussed in this course. Students will have opportunities to learn about historical background of gendered language and find out about current discourse on language and gender. No Japanese language ability is required.
