Introduction to the History of Women, Gender, and Sexuality
Comparative introduction to historical contingencies of sex roles, gender identities, and sexual practices. Explores ethical understandings of sexual practices, sex-defined labor roles, and legal codes (e.g., sex-specific labor laws, citizenship restrictions, marriage and nationality laws, etc.). Examines differences over time and space to better understand what is particular to our own practices and expectations. Particularly useful for students planning to concentrate in Women, Gender, and Sexuality as History majors. One course.
