An Introduction to Gender, Class, and Race

Gender, class and race are three of the major categories that scholars in the humanities and social sciences use to structure their analyses. Yet while in popular discourse gender, class and race can seem straightforward and self-explanatory, all three are social constructs—artificial frameworks that only appear natural when we use them unreflectively. None of them have stable, fixed definitions. This course focuses a critical lens on these three categories. Examining the history of and relationships between these important categories of analysis will help prepare students to exercise responsible citizenship in a diverse, interconnected world. This course looks at important theories scholars use to understand these categories and test those theories by applying them to real-life situations.
