Anthropological Perspectives on Gender


Please note: this is archived course information from 2018 for ANTHRO 211.

Description

Gender as a cultural construction has been a dynamic field of anthropological inquiry for almost half a century, during which ethnographic and theoretical approaches have continued to develop. The course considers issues such as how different peoples exhibit and conceptualise gender differences, the ways in which gender is simultaneously a social and cultural product and a force in shaping social and cultural phenomena, how anthropologists have studied them and contemporary issues in human gender relations at global, national and local scales.
