AMST 310H - Gender and Inequality in America - Honors

(3.00)
An examination of the ways in which gender roles and gender relations are constructed and experienced in American society. The course explores the development of a woman's "sphere" denoting women's position in the family and home; cultural definitions of femininity and masculinity through mass media, education and other agencies of socialization; the relationship between wage-earning and household work; and feminist consciousness and politics. Special attention is paid to the ways in which gender-based experiences are divided by other social relations, particularly those of class, race and age. Recommended Preparation: One lower-level social sciences or humanities course focused on American society or culture or permission of the instructor.
