Semester: 

Fall

Offered: 

2017
Male/Female, Man/Woman, Masculine/Feminine, Straight/Gay. Where do these consequential categories come from? How do they generate inequalities? Why are they so easily reproduced?  And what, if anything, should we do about it? Combining real-world applications with academic analyses, this course encourages you to think about how sexuality and gender have shaped the social world, as well as our own place within it.  (Public Service Announcement: Contrary to popular belief, heterosexual men are indeed welcome and encouraged to take this course!)
