Title:"Get it Yourself, Mike!" Investigating Gendered Discourse in UIUC Classrooms
Author(s):Brown, Caroline
gendered discourse
classroom discourse
University of Illinois
Abstract:This video project aimed to show my discourse-centered approach to analyzing the ethnographic data I collected. My initial research question was, "Does gender impact the ways to which students present themselves and their arguments, verbally and physically, and is there a distinction between how men's and women's arguments are taken up (or not) by the classroom or professor?" I observed 3 classrooms, but only used data from two. I video-recorded each classroom for a total of at least 3 hours. I then transcribed excerpts to use for discourse analysis. This video is a small excerpt of those recordings.
