Theories of Gender and Sexuality

Description: “Theories of Gender and Sexuality” is a new one-quarter seminar-style introductory course for undergraduates.

Students will produce descriptive, argumentative, and experimental engagements with theory and its scenes as the quarter progresses. Prior course experience in gender/sexuality studies (by way of the Civilization Core or other coursework) is strongly advised. Please see more detailed information and the application form by clicking on Theories Teaching Assistantship.
