WGSS 100 - Introduction to Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies


Credits: 4
An introduction to the field of women’s, gender, and sexuality studies that delineates some of the parameters and interdisciplinary connections in feminist and queer scholarship. Alongside discussions of women’s contemporary lives, students explore key social institutions and systems of power, oppression, and difference. We focus on the ways in which gender and sexuality are culturally constructed, with an emphasis on the intersections of identities, including gender, class, race, sexuality, ability, religion, and nationality.
