Gender in European Thought

Enrolment code: HTA205/305

Offered: Hobart: semester 2

Special note: may be taken as a Women’s Studies unit

Unit description:

Europeans have expressed their ideas and beliefs about gender and sexuality in a variety of ways which have differed over time. Those beliefs have had an enormous effect on the way we live our lives. What beliefs were held, at what times, and by whom? How were notions of gender and sexuality shaped? The unit examines these issues in the context of persecutions of women as witches and the policing of sexual preference.
