SOCIOL 1058

Male/Female, Man/Woman, Masculine/Feminine, Straight/Gay. Where do these consequential categories come from? How do they generate inequalities? Why are they so easily reproduced?  And what, if anything, should we do about it?  Combining real-world applications with academic analyses, this course encourages you to think about how sexuality and gender have shaped the social world, as well as our own place within it.
