WGS 151 - Introduction to Women’s & Gender Studies

[3 credit(s)]
This course focuses the ways in which gender is socially constructed and the apparatuses of power that reify and sometimes transgress traditions and “norms” that have deep historical roots. As an interdisciplinary field of inquiry, gender studies questions the role of gender in society, and the ways in which other identity categories such as sex, race, class, and sexual orientation shape identity and people’s experiences with privilege, agency, and oppression in the American and global contexts.
