Anthropology of Gender Roles
Course No. SS 350 Credits: 3.0
In this course students will examine the various forms of gender roles, stereotypes, stratification, and attitudes from a cross-cultural, anthropological perspective. We will look at different cultural notions and assignments of gender, and how men’s and women’s activities vary in different types of cultures. We will also consider gender related topics in our own culture. This course will be conducted in a seminar format, with a smaller class size, and an emphasis on student-led discussion around the topics presented. 3 credits.
