Gateway Seminar: Gender and Everyday Life

GSF 101S

What is gender? How does it impact your everyday life? Designed to introduce students to the study of gender, sexuality, and feminism, this course will explore these questions by focusing on settings in which gender shapes how we live, work, consume, see ourselves, forge identities, relate to others, navigate institutions, and make ethical decisions. Students' reflections on their own experiences and understanding of gender will be a consistent theme. How does gender define the social spaces we move through and inhabit? How does gender structure the various social institutions that shape our lives? In every part of the course, gender will be connected to race, sexuality, class, and nation.
