Description

This course will provide a broad, introductory survey of psychological science on women and gender, addressing such topics as gender stereotypes, gender socialization, love relationships, pregnancy and parenthood, gender and psychological disorders, and gendered violence. Throughout, we will learn how all of these things relate to mental health and wellbeing.

We also take a developmental perspective on these issues to understand how they unfold across the lifespan. In addition, we will take an “intersectional” perspective, focusing in particular on issues of race, racism, and resulting inequalities in society. We will rely on a range of vehicles: psychology readings, class discussions, films, photographs, and your own original writings. Be prepared for material that is intense, eye-opening, and contrary to popular belief.

Course Requirements:

Attendance in lecture and section is required. Students will complete several short writing assignments and take two exams over the course of the semester. Costs include textbook (over $100); other readings are online. Textbooks will also be available through the library reserve system.
