MW 12:30 - 1:45 PM

This course is an introduction to the sociological study of gender.  Sociologists of Gender argue that gender is a major organizing principle of everyday life.  In this course will be investigating the construction and maintenance of gendered – and transgendered – identities in a gender-stratified society.  The topics we will examine include: cultural definitions and expectations regarding gender identity and roles; childhood socialization; intimacies and sexualities; gender inequalities in social institutions, including families and the economy; power and politics; and social reforms for all individuals. Variations based on the intersection of race, ethnicity, and socioeconomic class (as well as other “categories of experience”) are considered throughout the course.  The focus of the course is on contemporary American society as well as global and transnational issues.
