ANTH 212: Gender, Sex, and Culture


12 credits and ANTH 110 or SOCI 110

English 100

The goal of this course is to help develop students’ critical thinking abilities with anthropological theory and methodology so they can ask and answer why/how certain gender roles develop in a particular culture and not another and how sexuality reflects a culture’s understanding and expression of a natural drive.  This course will introduce students to ethnographic examples to develop a historical and adaptive context for a culture’s understanding of gender and sexuality.
