This course explores the multifaceted concept of gender, offering students a broad spectrum of perspectives that challenge and enrich traditional understandings. Through a series of engaging discussions, critical readings, and projects, participants will investigate the evolution of gender roles, the impact of societal expectations, and the significance of gender in various cultural contexts. This course is designed to expose students to a diverse range of viewpoints, encouraging them to critically analyze and articulate their own positions on key issues. Emphasizing empathetic understanding, critical thinking and open dialogue, Gender Studies aims to equip students with a nuanced understanding of gender dynamics, fostering an environment of respect and curiosity for differing perspectives.

Completion of this course requires regular access to a laptop or desktop computer with working microphone and webcam, as well as a reliable internet connection.

This Fixed-Paced course incorporates a blend of synchronous and asynchronous elements. Students and teacher meet live via zoom on a regular weekly schedule. In addition, students complete coursework including guided readings, interactive videos, text and video-based discussion threads, problem sets, individual and collaborative projects, and so on. While these activities are time-flexible, teachers sequence them with weekly deadlines to help students keep on track and encourage and support the development of productive time management skills.
