WGSS 326 - Intersections of Gender, Race, Class, and Sexualities

This course centers on the intersectionality framework. Its primary focus is on the ways gender is embedded in and intersects with race/ethnicity, class, sexuality, age, ability/disability, and other patterns of identities, groups, and institutions. Course will be offered on even numbered years (Spring). SOC 365 and WGSS 326 are equivalent courses; a student may not receive credit for both.

Credits: (5)

Learner Outcomes:
