LST 121 - Introduction to Gender Studies
Introduces students to key topics and methods in the study of gender. Focusing on the idea that gender informs every aspect of social interaction, the course draws on material from literature, cultural studies, history, anthropology, sociology, psychology, and other disciplines. The class surveys the history of gender studies before investigating how gender shapes communication, sexuality, and social institutions (educational, legal, religious, etc.), and examining the nature of power in necessarily gendered relationships. Satisfies the Individual and Society General Education requirement and the Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion requirement.
