SOC218 Sociology of Gender 3 credits
Prerequisite(s): ( WR90R )
This course provides a sociological analysis of gender relations within and beyond the United States. We explore a range of topics, from the social construction of gender and everyday forms of gender socialization to the economic and political structures through which gendered inequalities are maintained and reinforced. We critically examine how gender categories have been challenged and contested over time, as well as the changing meanings and practices of feminism in historical context. And, finally, we employ intersectional and global perspectives to gain a better understanding of how gendered meanings and experiences vary across time and space.
This course may be taken 1 time for credit.
