WGS 1 Gender in Global Context.

This sequence focuses on the analysis of the historical, cultural, socioeconomic, and political contexts of gender relations in various parts of the world. Such a global perspective will be predicated on an understanding of the different debates around gender, race, and class that the variety of transnational feminisms has created. Students will demonstrate the ability to apply the fundamental contexts comparing the ways in which gender is constructed and functions in different countries and regions of the world. Students will develop skills of increasing complexity ranging from gender analysis to cross-disciplinary research in international contexts.
