HUMN 380 Global Perspectives On Gender

In this course, a sampling of cultures from around the globe will be investigated and compared. Issues may include the international sexual division of labor, gendered features of class systems, body rituals marking masculinity and femininity, and resistance to gender formations beyond Euro-American borders. Rather than assuming that Western patterns of domination and gendering are universal, this course takes a look at how the lives of men and women both together and separate are formed in other parts of the globe.
