Introduction to Gender Studies
0.50 Credit(s)
Academic Course
Prerequisite: 7.5 credits, including 1.0 credit of second-year liberal studies (including 0.5 VISC credit).
Throughout the world, men and women have historically been represented differently, whether those differences are attributed to nature or to culture. Drawing on cross-cultural critiques of art and culture - feminist, masculinist and queer - this course introduces students to some of the historical and contemporary contexts that have contributed to the construction of gendered identities.
