Fall/Spring semester

This course constructs a philosophical framework for the interdisciplinary examination of gender. Against a historical outline of the development of contemporary gender studies, we examine biological, sociological, and psychological perspectives on gender. These theoretical perspectives are put into discussion with ethical issues concerning sexuality, selfhood, personal identity, and autonomy. You can expect to acquire both historical awareness and conceptual clarity contributing to an informed and critical engagement with the multifarious aspects of gender.
