GSS 201 - Introduction to Gender & Sexlty Studies


4 credit(s)
This introductory level course explores the various foundations of gender and sexuality studies with an interdisciplinary focus. The course aims to explore several issues of gender and sexuality in the media, cinema, literature, and theory. Students review and critique the construction of gender and sexuality under patriarchy in the past and study similar yet different structures of power in current discourse. The course consists of two components: a classroom experience with an emphasis on the breadth of literature on feminism, queer theory, and masculinities, and field work in the community.

Core Requirement(s): Counts toward core requirements: Humanities (2010-17 catalogs); Diverse Perspectives, Social Systems and Human Behavior.
