GSWS 312 - Transgender Studies


4 credits
Explores transgender studies and theories, with a focus on transgender identities. Begins with the historical development of the category transgender, moving to contemporary conceptions, and the embodiment of transgender identities primarily within the U.S. The focus will be on the experience of transgender individuals, the ways gender intersects with race, class, and sexuality, and how these experiences contribute to our understandings of gender identity and gendered social structures. We will also complicate the category of transgender as an umbrella term, discuss some of the experiences of nongendered and “other” gendered individuals in the U.S., and address cisgender privilege.  Completion of GSWS 201  recommended. Approved for University Studies Integration - Strand J.
Grade mode designated on a CRN basis each term. Students should consult current term schedule.
