Unit Information

Overview

This course offers an introduction to Women’s and Gender Studies, an interdisciplinary academic field that explores critical questions about the meaning of gender in society. The primary goal of this course is to familiarize students with key issues, questions and debates in Women’s and Gender Studies scholarship, both historical and contemporary. Gender scholarship critically analyzes themes of gendered performance
and power in a range of social spheres, such as law, culture, education, work, medicine, social policy and the family.

Course Objectives

Throughout the semester, we will “question gender” in multiple ways:

  • Why has gender been a primary organizing principle of society?
  • How do “gendered scripts” for dress, appearance and behavior emerge among different social
    groups and in different societies and historical periods?
  • How do we explain the sexual division of labor and the unequal social status of women and girls
    and those activities and roles deemed “feminine” in society?
  • In what ways does gender intersect with race, ethnicity and sexuality?
  • How do gendered structures of power and authority operate?
  • What factors contribute to the formation and success of movements for and against gender
    equality and fluidity?

Learning content and outcomes
