PHIL - 285. Philosophy and Gender


3 credit(s)
This course examines the relationship between, and the making of, sex and gender. It tackles the question of how we are and become sexual beings, and critically explores the fluid boundary between the biological and the social. Is gender a cultural construction? Or are there essential differences between women and men; ones that we should embrace rather than reject? If gender is made, can it be unmade? Are there two or multiple genders? Is our gender located in the body or is it psychological? Major historical figures as well as contemporary feminist philosophers will be studies. Examples from film and media may be used to stimulate discussion.

Prerequisite(s): PHIL 101  or PHIL 103 .
