ANTH 145 - Gender, Sex and Sexuality in Cross-Cultural Perspective

Semester Hours: 3
Once a Year
This course uses a cross-cultural perspective to illuminate our changing understanding of gender, sex, and sexuality.  It asks such questions as: Are women everywhere subordinate to men? What kinds of families, marriages, and forms of sexual reproduction do people have? Does every culture recognize a sharp difference between masculinity and femininity? The course introduces anthropological concepts and approaches to examine how diverse human cultures construct, understand, and transform gender, sex, and sexuality. Themes include reproduction, families, and marriage practices; the performance of gender; gender ideologies; the intersection of race, class and gender; and political struggles to change sex and gender systems.
