WGSX 220: Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies (4E)

This interdisciplinary class introduces students to the foundational issues, debates, and methodologies surrounding feminist, gender, and sexuality scholarship.  This course will consider biological, psychological, and cultural aspects of gender and sexual identity and development as well as the links among gender, sexuality, race, and class.  In this course, students will explore material and theoretical aspects of these core dimensions of human experience across time and cultures.  Given the gendered dynamics of power and oppression, the history, representation, and experience of traditionally disempowered groups - women and sexual minorities - will receive special attention.  Not open to students who have received credit for both WGSX 200 and WGSX 210.  This course satisfies the core curriculum requirement in Humanistic Foundations.
