Specialization - Sex, Body and Identity

GEND 2206  Sex, Body and Identity


Any 18 credits completed.


Three hours of lecture per week for one term.




Students examine the theoretical questions concerning sex, the body and identity. What are Western sex categories? How did they emerge in Western science and then change over time? How do prevailing conceptions of sex, gender and race condition our relationships to our bodies and the bodies of others? How do these socially constructed categories anchor themselves in the bodies and minds of human beings and in broader patterns of privilege and marginalization?
