Gender, Culture and Society provides an introduction to the
interdisciplinary study of gender - the social creation and cultural
representation of feminity and masculinity - by examining relevant
beliefs, practices, debates and political struggles. Lectures,
readings, and class discussions consider how people of different
races, ethnicities, classes, and nationalities in various historical
periods have assumed gendered identities. Topics may include:
romantic love and marriage; sexuality; parenthood, reproduction,
birth control and health, body image, and popular cuture; the sexual
division of labor and economic development; and feminist movements.
