Gender is something so fundamental to our lives, to our identities, and how we interact with others that we often take it for granted. However, understandings of gender vary across time and place, and even within cultures, making it clear that our understandings of gender are not universal or timeless.

Class Description:

This course examines gender through an interdisciplinary perspective. We will explore how we all ‘do gender' and how this performance varies across time and space. The course draws from literature on the United States as well as from transnational perspectives to critically study the gendered patterns produced by institutions in our society. These patterns reveal how gender intersects with race, ethnicity, nation, class, religion and sexuality in complex ways. We will also engage with academic literature examining how gender shapes our lives throughout the life course including child socialization, family structure, the media, intimate relationships, and the workplace.
