AFST 130 - (IS, CC) Gender and Sexuality in Africa
Semester Hours: 3-4
Understanding gender and sexuality today requires a comprehensive and engaging look into various institutions – particularly 20th and 21st century governance, kinship, media, and economics. This course will apply a sociological lens to the African continent, attempting not to understand each context of 54 countries, but to deconstruct shared processes of becoming gendered, sexed or sexual subjects. We will emphasize legal and social movements and pinpoint various impositions of Western ideology and political control, particularly during colonialism, the AIDS crisis, and early moments of transnational feminism.
Credit is given for only one of the following:
AFST 130, LGBT 130, SOC 130, WST 130.
