WGSS 12000 - Intro to Women’s, Gender & Sexuality Studies

Course Credit: 1
INTRODUCTION TO WOMEN’S, GENDER, AND SEXUALITY STUDIES This course is an overview of WGSS as a discipline and an interdisciplinary field of inquiry, introducing the many issues, theories, and feminist approaches that constitute it. We will examine how gender intersects with nation, religion, race, class and sexuality in order to produce systematic structures of power. Course materials include theoretical, analytical and creative texts. Students will gain the critical tools to analyze a range of historical, political, social and cultural issues from a WGSS perspective, across local and global contexts. Annually. Fall and Spring.
