ANTH 1911 Gender and Sexuality in the Middle East


The aim of this course is to offer an overview of the key issues in the study of gender and sexuality in the Middle East. It will provide a gendered understanding of prevailing structures, ideologies, social practices and trends for those students interested in Middle East societies, cultures and politics, as well as those interested in women and gender studies. While the course focuses on anthropological approaches, it is interdisciplinary in scope, with readings and theoretical underpinnings ranging from anthropology to history, sociology, and political science, cultural and media studies.
