ANTH 125 - Gender and Culture

Upper Division

While sex is biological, gender refers to the set of cultural expectations assigned to males and females. This course takes a four-field anthropological approach to understanding gender, investigating such topics as third and fourth gender diversity, gender among non- human primates, gender roles in prehistory and the sociolinguistics of gender usage. Special attention is paid to the ways in which gender articulates with other social practices and institutions such as class, kinship, religion and subsistence practices.
