Course Description

This introductory-level, interdisciplinary course explores the basic concepts and perspectives of Gender & Women’s Studies (GWS) from an intersectional angle; that is, examining the ways in which gender intersects with race, ethnicity, nationality, class, sexuality, sexual identity, disability, and other categories. The concepts of gender—the roles, behaviors, activities, and attributes that a society considers appropriate for men and women— privilege and oppression, intersectionality, and feminist praxis will be at the core of this course. After a background in the history and significance of GWS as a field of study, you will learn to critically examine how institutionalized privilege and oppression shape individual lives and intersecting identity categories.
