Course Description
This course takes an anthropological perspective to debate on a general human category, such
as sexes and gender. Through this perspective the course will explore the process of how
sexes, gender, and the relationship between men and women are largely cultural and social
products. Students will also be exploring political, economic, material, and environmental
factors that are deem to be part of such processes. This course will start from introducing core
concerns, arguments, and approaches related to gender and sexuality. After the introductory
sessions, we will focus, week by week, on common (or controversial) gender and sexual
issues we encounter in lives. These weeks will be discussion intensive and relevant analysis
and scholarly works will be introduced to deepen your understanding of gender and sexuality
via the topics. Students are encouraged to examine their own gender identities and beliefs
critically; to not only understand how our gender assumptions are shaped but also to develop
their own gender statement.
