Course Description: Ranging from work in the nineteenth century to contemporary anthropological studies, this course analyzes evolutionary, psychological, materialist, structuralist, socio-linguistic, and reflexive approaches to understanding gender behavior and gender stratification. The course explores how anthropological data from around the world is crucial for questioning widely held assumptions about men and women in contemporary societies. Therefore, it examines the processes and practices of the construction of the categories of “woman” and “man” in different cultural and historical contexts. By presenting ethnographic and historical accounts of gender variations and how they are currently understood and displayed, the course reveals the social and cultural forces that have created changes in sex/gender systems. It pays particular attention to the ways in which categories of gender/sexuality are deployed in various discursive regimes such as nationalism, modernism, colonialism, and globalization.
