 A&H 188 - Introduction to Gender Studies


This course introduces students to the study of gender (what it means to be male or female). It is taught this term by Social Historian Nancy Mykoff. She explores the gendering of life in the recent past through the present, by analyzing gender in daily life and popular culture. Readings and discussions explore topics ranging from gender and work, in the home, at leisure, and within politics. Throughout the term, guest speakers spotlight gender in different disciplines, ranging from cognitive science to art history. Students give presentations on scholarly articles and primary research. By the end of the course, class-members have a clear sense of the constructions and consequences of gender.​
