Montreal tells us about their study on the use of a particular phonetic feature of American English by a handful of genderfluid students at Reed, and also about how they became interested in linguistics.
Reed community members can read Montreal’s thesis, “/s/tylizing the /s/elf: A First Look into the Concurrent Fluidity of Gender and Language,” online in the Electronic Theses Archive.
Nearly all Reedies take Hum 110, the year-long humanities conference that serves as an introduction to the Reed education. Max decided to go back to Hum 110 to study how students engage with social justice for their linguistics thesis.
Reed community members can read Max’s thesis, “Just Saying(s): Discursive Practices and Social Justice in a Humanities 110 Conference,” online in the Electronic Theses Archive.
