Description:Gender has operated as a fundamental category in the organization of knowledge, social systems, forms of representation, and modes of production and consumption. You'll investigate the ways that gender intersects with other variables such as race, class, and cultural difference. An alternative to the traditional curriculum, Gender and Women’s Studies provides you with the opportunity to examine history, social structures, the sciences, language, literature, and culture from critical and illuminating perspectives.
Gender and women’s studies is a dynamic and rapidly expanding interdisciplinary area of study. With every course you take in Gender and Women’s studies, you’ll gain a better understanding of women’s roles in history. You’ll also see how aspects of gender, race, class, sex, age, sexual orientation, and health contribute to complex social relationships—and all too frequently, to injustice and discrimination.
