On Human Nature: Gender

July 3, 2014

(HCOL 40023, upper-division), TCU

In this course, students interrogate notions of gender in contemporary American culture through biological, psychological, sociological, historical, and religious lenses. After comprehending and debating basic definitions and theories of gender in relation to social and biological selves, the class examines ways in which people embody, perform, and identify gender in various socio-cultural contexts. Following a semester of in-depth discussion, students will draw from their broad theoretical and personal understandings to analyze gender as a ubiquitous force in society.
