ANTH 2200 - Anthropology of Sex and Gender

Hours: 4
This course will explore the socio-cultural construction of sex and gender categories. Since sex and gender are often “naturalized”—seen as emerging from inborn conditions—part of our process will be unlearning our assumptions as well as learning about the tremendous range of meanings assigned to gender across various societies. By exploring and comparing the definition and performance of gender in different social worlds, students will acquire a theoretical understanding of basic processes of socialization, identity, gendered performance, and cultural change.
