(crosslisted) FGSS 2421 , LGBT 2421  
(GB) (SBA-AS)      
Fall. 3 credits. Student option grading.

L. Ramberg.

An introduction to the anthropology of sex, sexuality and gender, this course uses case studies from around the world to explore how the worlds of the sexes become gendered.  In ethnographic, ethnohistorical and contemporary globalizing contexts, we will look at: intersexuality & ‘supernumerary’ genders; physical & cultural reproduction; sexuality; and sex- & gender-based violence & power. We will use lectures, films, discussion sections and short field-based exercises.
