AN 4100 - Gender in Cross-Cultural Perspectives

This course examines gender through an anthropological lens. The class will explore what it means to be a woman, a man, or “other” (neither man nor woman). In our examination of how gender is embedded in people’s daily lives, we will use a variety of theoretical perspectives and ethnographic data from across the globe. Through the comparative perspective, we will discern how gender impacts the human condition and shapes the way in which we attribute meaning to our experience and our world.

Prerequisite: AN 1000  or instructor approval.
