This unit explores the construction of gender in various genres, and the way genres can be gendered. Students will produce research-based work that explores female and male voices in different textual modes. Research topics to be examined include: themes and centres of interest associated with particular textual types and modes; character, voicing, and style in different genres; writing the male and female selves; the way friendship, security, and love are imagined, written, and read in different genres; and fiction and non-fiction as gendered modes.
