SOCI 036E. Gender, Family, and Work in East Asia
This course examines issues regarding gender, family, and work in contemporary East Asian societies from a sociological perspective. The major goals of this course include: understanding how family life and work interconnect and interfere with each other and the implications that this has for women and men; and gaining empirical knowledge about gender, work, and family in East Asia. By taking a sociological approach to learning about the family and work and by gaining knowledge about empirical trends and patterns in East Asia today, this course will give students the theoretical and empirical tools to understand how family life is linked to social structure; to economic, cultural, and historical events and transitions in non-western contexts.
