Primary Instructor:

We often think of gender as natural and unchanging. This course will challenge common assumptions about gender difference, and address how gender shapes our daily lives. It will provide an introduction to major themes in the sociology of gender. We will examine various theoretical approaches to understanding gender differences between men and women, explore how gender is shaped and regulated by institutions and social structures, and consider how gender intersects with social categories such as race and class. Finally, we will also investigate how gender is implicated in 21st century changes such as globalization.
