This course is designed to provide upper-level students with the opportunity to reflect on the personal meaning of gender, bridging from the biological structures that determine our sexuality, to gender as a social institution that affects our behaviors and beliefs. The course addresses (and distinguishes) sexuality and gender as experienced on the personal level, particularly gender as applied to the physical self; relationships of a self with intimates, friends and family; and relationships with environments such as school and work (using the Bronfenbrenner ecological model of psychological development). The wide variation of gender perspectives through history will be reviewed, as well as variations in gender concepts across current cultures. Keeping those broader perspectives in mind, psychosexual variations will be identified and discussed. Gender biases in the study of gender will be presented, and each student will have a chance to set up a simple gender study.
Prerequisites: Introduction to Human Development or Introduction to Psychology or equivalent.
