Gender Studies | Gendered Relations
G230 | 25582 | Kinder, J


This course examines the gendered dynamics of social relations.
Specifically, it explores how gender and sexuality are imagined,
constructed, and lived within a diverse set of institutions and
cultural locations.  Such locations may include the military, the
antebellum slave plantation, the global sex market, the hospital,
and the contemporary workplace.  In addition to socio-historical
theories of gender and sexuality, students will draw upon
autobiography, ethnography, literature, and popular culture to
understand how gender and sexuality shape social organization and
human interaction.  Above all, students will be asked to analyze the
relationship between gendered identities and the social contexts in
which they are performed.
