Gender and Sexuality in the L2 Classroom: A Round Table for Faculty and Grad Students

November 20, 2019 - 3:00pm to 4:30pm

Moderated by Todd Reeser, Chair, Dept. of French & Italian

Presenters: Caitlin Dahl (French), David Tenorio (Spanish), Lorraine Denman (Italian), Brett Wells (French)

Join us as four presenters talk about gender and sexuality in the second language (L2) classroom. How do we teach gender and sexuality in undergraduate courses ranging from the first week of a first-semester language course to advanced special topics courses? How can language curricula be more gender-diverse at all levels? What do we do when a non-binary student says that they do not feel included in a L2 textbook's presentation of pronouns? Can gender theory be brought to bear on the language classroom?

Don’t miss this one. Multiple languages will be represented, and there will be copious time for discussion for all those who teach or will teach language courses.

Co-sponsored by Gender, Sexuality, and Women's Studies.
