SOC* 211: Sociology of Gender

3 Credits
This course addresses the distinction between biological sex and the social construction of gender and investigates issues about the dynamics of sex and gender relationships in different socio-cultural contexts. Major topics for discussion include gender role differentiation, sex role stereotyping, and changes over time in male/female relationships in North American society with the differences and inequalities shaped by social class, race, ethnicity, sexuality, age and national origin. A global perspective, which examines and compares the place of gender in nations of the North with those of the South, is also emphasized.
