Summer 1997

240/Amer. Cult. 240. Introduction to Women's Studies. Open to all undergraduates. (3). (HU). (This course meets the Race and Ethnicity Requirement).

Designed as an introduction to the new feminist scholarship on women, this is an interdisciplinary course which acquaints students with key concepts and theoretical frameworks to analyze women's condition. We will explore how women's status has changed over time, but we will concentrate on the situation of contemporary American women. The course will not only provide students with an analysis of women's oppression, but will suggest strategies for ending sexual inequality.

447/Soc. 447. Gender Roles and Status. (2). (SS).

See Sociology 447. (Hasso)
