Course Description: This course introduces gender studies, denaturalizing various phenomena surrounding sex, gender, and sexuality. Emerging in the second half of the 20th century, gender studies sought to create new knowledge especially in the field of the social sciences, after the realization that existing scholarly concepts of humans, citizens, nations, and workers are not value-free conceptions. In this course, we discover disparities in various social phenomena by looking for gender in seemingly gender-neutral conceptions. These disparities are not limited to the differences between men and women, but also between “normal men and women” and those who are different. This course also examines how certain differences have not been viewed as discrimination because they have been naturalized in our society. In this case, we can again expect to discover not only differences between “men” and “women” but also between “normal men and women” and “those who are different,” definitions that have changed historically and socially. The final goal is for students to understand how the concept of gender was created to oppose a certain viewpoint and how it was theoretically changed, as well as to acquire knowledge on gender studies in concrete areas such as family, work, sexuality, and violence.
