Ethnographies of Language and Gender

Recently Elise Berman of the UNC Charlotte Department of Anthropology asked colleagues via the LINGANTH email list to recommend recent ethnographies treating language and gender.

I am looking for good ethnographies of language and gender to teach to undergraduates, particularly recent ones (last five years). I was wondering if people would be willing to share their favorites?

Several people responded.

Norma Mendoza-Denton’s Homegirls: Language and Cultural Practice Among Latina Youth Gangs was also recommended by at least three people – Paul Lai, Jennifer Sclafani, and Angela Reyes.

What recent ethnographies of language and gender would you recommend for undergraduate students in linguistic anthropology?
