ISP 145 Why Gender Matters

3 hours 

Gender has a profound impact on the social, psychological, and economic status of the individual and, to a large extent, determines how one knows oneself and interacts with others. Through the lenses of literature, medicine, anthropology, philosophy, biology and contemporary feminist thought, this introductory course will examine gender as it stands at the crossroads of race, class, politics, sexual orientation and personal identity.




This course satisfies the Flexible Core: Individual and Society area of the Gen Ed Program.
