Ever wonder what a college class is like? Come see what it's all about by sitting in on a Women's and Gender Studies course taught by Pr. Marjorie Jolles.
This course is a critical, multi-disciplinary study of sexual identities, histories, and controversies, with focus on their political and cultural meaning. It is designed to help students acquire certain “enduring understandings” of the political life of sex. These understandings include the knowledge that:
- Sex is historical: its meanings and identities change over time
- Sex is intersectional: its meanings and identities result from sex’s intersection with race, gender, class, age, nation, religion, and other markers of identity
- Sex is social: its meanings and identities are socially specific, regulated, and constructed
- Sex is moral: its value is debated in civic life
- Sex is political: it determines and is determined by power, often reflected in law and policy
