SOCI 026D. Sociology of Gender

What is gender and how do we make sense of it? This course will offer students an overview of the various ways social scientists describe how societies think about and are built on gender and gender differences. This course has two aims. First, the course will introduce students to some of the main frameworks used to define and explain gender in sociology and social science research. Second, it will focus more specifically on how these frameworks and gender-based issues manifest in the world around us. This is an overview course meant to give students a broad introduction into different areas of theory and research in gender studies from a sociological view-point. It focuses primarily on gender in the West with a specific emphasis on the United States although we will touch on theories and research beyond the U.S. context.
