SOC 435/4040 - Gender and Power in Development (3 cr.)



Prerequisites
Prerequisite: nine hours of social sciences, at least junior standing or the consent of the instructor.

Description
The course will examine the transformations in the lives of women and men through development and incorporation into global economic and political systems from a sociological perspective, particularly from the “Third World”. However, the focus is not limited to women, but rather concentrates on the structure and process of gender relations. In examining “gender politics”, we will explore the politicization of gender relations at various levels of society, from domestic settings to national contexts to the international sphere.

When Offered
Offered annually.
