GWST/SOCY 355
Sociology of Gender
Winter 2021
Online, asynchronous 

This course introduces the key concepts sociologists have contributed to the study of gender.  We will examine the origins and development of those concepts and empirical work on the sociology of gender in the last three decades. Intersectional feminist theories and research will be emphasized, as we examine how gender is socially constructed within ethno-racial contexts. Students will also be introduced to global/transnational concerns, studies of masculinities, the body and sexuality studies.

Pre-reqs: SOCY 101 or ANTH 211 or GWST 100
