ANTH 002D. First-Year Seminar: Culture and Gender


The goal of this seminar is to dismantle commonplace assumptions about gender, sexuality, and sexual difference. It brings key texts in gender theory (Foucault, Butler, and others) into conversation with anthropological studies that respond to, problematize, or advance these theoretical claims. Our focus is the gendered body as the site of power and resistance, in contexts that range from past empires to present-day inequalities, and from technologies of reproduction to drag performances of femininity.
