HIST 718 - Seminar in Gender and Women’s History

[3]
This course will introduce students to the fields of women’s and gender history, as well as their methodologies and theories. It will investigate the historical construction of gender, histories of femininity and/or masculinity and gender as a category of historical analysis. Any course in women’s history will explore the contributions of women to the social, economic, political and intellectual spheres; their relative status in various time periods and cultures; and the obstacles women have faced in the past in terms of class, race, ethnicity, maritcal status, age and sexuality. Gender history courses will focus on how gender intersects with topics such as sexuality, empire or war, in any given time and place.
