Gender Studies is a field that has been formed in and through theories originating in women?s studies, queer theory, masculinity studies and their intersections with race and class. In this course students will learn how gender studies theories have re-conceptualized gender and sexuality as products of the interactions among historical, representational, racial and cultural constructs. Readings and discussions will focus on a series of themes and issues such as rage, bodies, gender performance, family, consumerism, and political rights.
