HIST 356 - Gender and History


This course surveys how historians approach the topic of gender and how the discipline of Gender Studies has altered the way professionals study history. Rather than focusing on a particular region or era, this course examines how notions of femininity, masculinity, and the relationships between the two have changed and endured across different temporal and spatial contexts. Students will learn about the development of gender as a category of historical analysis, the growth of interdisciplinary approaches to gender in and out of academe, and current approaches to both gendering history and historicizing gender. Also offered as WGSS 356.

Prerequisites & Notes: One 100- or 200-level course in HIST or WGSS 211.
Credits: 5
Grade Mode: Letter
