This course introduces graduate students in the Women's and Gender Studies Graduate Certificate Program to the wealth of scholarship available across participating women's and gender studies disciplines, and to encourage development of critical analytical skills in assessing these sources. The twin fields of women and gender studies are rich and diverse, containing controversy and ongoing debates around the major questions and appropriate answers concerning gender differences and inequalities. This course approaches the fields of women and gender studies through a series of selected but interrelated topics. Students will be exposed to a lecture from one of the fields represented by the program and engage in in-depth discussion.
