HONS 174 Honors Introduction to Women’s and Gender Studies (3)

The Introduction to Women’s and Gender Studies is an interdisciplinary course designed to explore the rich body of knowledge developed by and about women and gender. We study gendered structures and their consequences in contemporary cultures and societies. In addition, we examine feminist theories and relevant social movements. This course will introduce students to the practice of critically analyzing past and present social conditions of women’s lives. We will explore the historical roots of women’s oppression in the United States as a system of power relations enmeshed in constructions and assumption pertaining to race, gender, sexuality, religion, ability, national status and the culture of capitalism. This is the Honors course version of WGST 200 . Students may not receive credit for both.
