IDS 202 Introduction to Women’s & Gender Studies

3 Credit(s) DI DIII V CS
Women’s Studies and Gender Studies are complementary interdisciplinary fields whose research and scholarship examines women’s and men’s lives, conditions and contributions within historical, social, cultural, national and transnational contexts. Students will explore how gender is constructed and negotiated through the lens of families, communities, education, society, film and the media. Feminist and gender based theories and methodologies will enhance student awareness regarding the interlocking systems of inequity, inequality, oppression and privilege thereby addressing issues of power, resistance and social transformation. Three lecture hours per week.
