GENDER 208

Thinking Gender


Description

This course explores the interdisciplinary fields of feminist and gender theory, looking at the historical development of feminist theory across the humanities and social sciences, but emphasising current developments in feminist and gender theorising around questions of identity, embodiment, gender construction, queer theory and the relationship between gender and sexuality.

The primary objective of this course is for students to develop a broad understanding of a range of feminist approaches to analysing social structures, texts and cultural phenomena so that they can compare and apply these approaches in their written academic work and everyday life.
