About the Course

What does a broad cross-cultural perspective contribute to the understanding of femininities and masculinities, genders and sexualities? The focus of this course is on the diverse cultural logics that separate females, males, and sometimes third or fourth genders into different groups in different societies (with a hegemonic masculinity often being the case). It includes anthropological theories of how sex and gender are produced, expressed and negotiated through culture and practice and relates them to relevant ethnographic examples of such processes. Focusing primarily on non-Western cultures and societies, gender roles and sexuality are examined within the broader contexts of identity formation on, for example, national and transnational levels.
