Gender Studies

The gender studies courses will examine historical issues around the definition and construction of gender.

Gender roles and position in society will be discussed through literature, art, cinema, conduct manuals, feminist criticism and queer theory.

Many, but not all, of these courses will focus on the ways in which men and women are questioning the definitions, roles and stigmas imposed on the body.
