WGS100-01C Introduction to Women, Gender, and Sexualities in the United States (with Lynne Byall Benson)

This interdisciplinary course examines how social constructions of gender and sexuality shape our day-to-day interactions with a variety of social institutions, such as the family and workplace, and contribute to systems of power and privilege. Through a careful examination of texts, films and other materials, students will explore contemporary feminist challenges to long-standing assumptions about what constitutes diverse gendered identities and will relate these insights to their own lived experiences in productive ways.

Remote: Courses that are typically taught face-to-face will be delivered remotely this spring. As opposed to an online course, which requires no live sessions and allows a student to study anytime, a remote course is either: (1) a course with live class sessions delivered via web conferencing, or (2) a course with pre-recorded lectures that a student can watch anytime, typically paired with live discussions sessions. For more detail on the remote format of a specific course, contact the instructor.
