EALL Undergraduate Wins Research Award

EALL is excited to announce that Jacqueline Huaman is a recipient of the Humanities Undergraduate Research Fellowship (HURF) and University of Oregon Undergraduate Research Opportunity Program (UROP) Award!

Jacqueline is undertaking a thesis project that investigates gendered features in Japanese. Her broad goal is to examine whether the gendered nature of Japanese, in particular the idea of “female language,” reflects a normative language ideology or the reality of language use. Her research analyzes represented gender through idol music and gender in practice through naturally occurring conversation data, while also incorporating interviews with Japanese speakers to show their understanding of gendered language.  She plans to present the work at UO Undergraduate Research Forum and the Northwest Linguistics Conference.
