GENDER STUDIES   [Archived Catalog]
2016-2017 Johnstown Campus Catalog


Minimum Credits: 3
Maximum Credits: 3
This course is designed to offer interested students an opportunity to broaden their awareness and understanding of gender in contemporary American and global cultures in relation to the historical trajectories that shape and provoke current issues and events. The course provides a solid grounding in the critical understanding of both the representations of gender in texts of various media and the relationship of such representations to the culture that produces and receives them. A series of text selections, including primary and secondary essays of theory and criticism that explore particular ways of looking and primary texts of literature that contain representations to be analyzed, will be examined in their historical, intellectual, and literary contexts, considering a variety of critical approaches.
