MAS 160: Gender and Sexuality (02)
Time: Tuesday, Thursday 9:00-10:15am
Location: DMH 165
The course examines gender and sex role socialization in Mexican American Communities. Analysis is imbedded in an examination of the legacy of colonization and the introduction of Christian religion, European patriarchal constructs, and their implication on issues of power, self consciousness, and traditions. This course begins from the premise that all societies and cultural groups are shaped by patriarchal forces. In the Chicana/o U.S. experience processes of racialization and class relations also influence the particular patriarchal relations that affect women and men in their everyday lives.
Syllabus available the first day of class. All readings are found at the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Library as e-books and in the article database. No books must be purchased for this class, but you may need to print some copies for class discussion.
