G600 | 7940 | Frazier, L
This course introduces historical, theoretical, behavioral,
philosophical, scientific, multi- and cross-cultural perspectives on
gender and its meanings, exploring its disciplinary and
interdisciplinary uses and implications. Attention is given to the
emergence of the category “gender” itself, and its variable
applications to different fields of knowledge, experience, cultural
expression, and institutional regulation. The class will be taught
as seminar. Readings are to be done before class so that you may
fully participate in the discussion.
This course deals with aspects of human sexuality and gender in a
straight-forward and explicit manner. If this is a problem for you,
please do not take this course.
