ANTH 315 - Gender and Culture

This course focuses on gender as a culturally constructed, historically variable, and politically contested category rather than an immutable biological “given.” This course has two major objectives: first, to develop a cross-cultural understanding of femininity, masculinity, androgyny, and gendered phenomena generally by examining and comparing gender relations and gender ideologies in a wide variety of human societies, ranging from small bands of hunters and gatherers to post-industrial states; and second, to develop a critical understanding of the types of theories, methods, and data that are relevant to the study of gender and sexuality - including heteronormativity, same-sex relations, transgender practices and identities, “third sexes,” “third genders” - in anthropology and related disciplines.
