Anthropology of Gender, Sexuality, and Patriarchy

This course will critically examine the dynamics of power vis-à-vis the disenfranchised and the dispossessed in both general terms and in regard to specific cases globally, specifically in those cases involving abuses of patriarchy. This examination will necessarily involve discussions of feminism and feminist theory, the cultural construction of gender and sexuality, and the cultural origins of patriarchy. Also, the traditional or essentialist perspective will be compared and contrasted with the postmodern perspective.
