GEN 205 Gender and Justice

3 hours 

This course will examine assumptions about gender and sexuality and the ways that various institutions such as nation-states, transnational NGOs, religions, communities, and families reinforce and/or punish people who challenge these images. The course will also address the power held by governing institutions, particularly in the area of justice - social and criminal - and the ramifications this power holds for individuals and communities. Students taking this course will better understand the ways that gender, sexuality, class, and race interact with social institutions and norms throughout the world.
