Seeking language and gender research

I teach a course in Language and Gender and my readings are old. I'm seeking research articles from 2000 onwards. This is an undergraduate senior seminar for non-linguists, so articles that require substantial understanding of structural linguistics would likely be inappropriate.

I am particularly interested in empirical psycholinguistic research on pronouns, word meanings, evidence of presupposition, or the like. In my surveys of recent research, there is a great deal of Critical Discourse Analysis; I can easily find sufficient resources of that type.

If you'd like to see the readings I currently use to get an idea of level, go to

Thanks in advance.
