Gender & World HAF105




Gender & World explores the shape(s) and impact(s) of gendered assumptions on human interactions in diverse areas of the world and in different historical periods. This unit focuses on how people have acted and do act on the basis of their gendered assumptions, and examines worldly practices which are based on gendered foundations. Gender and sexual difference are examined in their roles as world-organising principles (that is, as abstract categories) and elements (that is, as material realities). This unit also provides students with a global perspective on Gender Studies.
