SOCI 3230 - Gender, Sexuality, and Society

3 hours
Prerequisites: SOCI 1120  or PSYC 1102  with a grade of “C-” or better.
This course examines the role of sex, gender and sexuality in society. It explores the ways gender differences are culturally reproduced transforming male and female biology into masculinity and femininity. Current gender theory emphasizes the division of labor, power, social control, violence, and ideology as structural and interactional bases of inequalities among men and women of different social classes, racial/ethnic groups, and sexualities. Gender and sexuality are organizing principles of society and its institutions like the economy, media, and the family. How gender and sexuality are constructed varies across time and space. There are not only differences between societies but also within societies. Race, class, and sexuality intersect with gender resulting in different gendered practices and norms.
