WGS 3440 Men and Masculinity


This course examines the construction of masculinity as a product of certain socio-historical movements. Building on feminist theory, this course seeks to understand how gender is not a natural condition of any individual or group of individuals but rather an ideaology imposed on men for social, political, religious, and scientific reasons. The course will look at how different cultures in different historical moments defined masculinity and how this term is related to specific historical events. It will also attempt to link the historical construction of masculinity with contemporary views of what it means to be a man. Prerequisite(s): WGS 1100
