Reading Gender in Everyday Life - GEN210

This unit evaluates the ways that gendered identities and relations operate and are shaped in and by the cultural and social institutions that organise and frame our everyday lives. The unit builds on foundational concepts from the field of Gender Studies and is divided into thematic modules that may include politics, religion, economics, media, and health. Through an in-depth and interdisciplinary analysis of these topics we examine how ideas and ideals of gender are produced, reproduced, and deployed, while recognising the ways that gender intersects with other identities including sexuality, class, and race. Assignments encourage the development of research skills including posing questions and sourcing evidence.
