ANTH 1730 - Gender and Culture in Global Perspective

3 Credits

This course examines how sex, gender, and sexuality are culturally constructed through social structures, and how these influence the biological distinctions of male, female, and intersex individuals. Through a comparative approach, we will survey gender roles, values, and relative rank in various socioeconomic levels, including hunter-gatherer, horticultural, pastoral, agricultural, and industrial. Other material to explore will include the intersection between gender, race, class, and sexuality; the origins and consequences of patriarchy; the impact of the global economy on gender identities and self-perceptions; gender, politics, and social change; and the status of women and men in different kinship systems and families, and the power that accrues to them. 3C/3/0/0
