ANTH 241 - Gender and Society


CR: 3
What is gender, as a natural or social phenomenon? How do gendered practices shape social relations? Are gender differences always linked to notions of sexuality and sexual practice? Is hierarchy always established by the dominance of one gender over another? In this course we investigate primate models of gendered behavior, and the history of the early human family from evolutionary and social perspectives. The role of heterosexuality, bisexuality, and homosexuality in human society are examined from archaeological sources as well as in contemporary ethnographic case studies. Offered alternate years. May be counted toward the major or minor in archaeology and toward the minor in gender studies. III.W, V.5
