The Politics of Sex: Gender, Race, and Sex in Modern America (CSRE 162, FEMGEN 61, FEMGEN 161, HISTORY 61, HISTORY 161)
Iker, T. (PI)
This course explores the ways that individuals and movements for social and economic equality have redefined and contested gender and sexuality in the modern United States. Using a combination of primary and secondary sources, we will explore the intersections of gender, race, class, and sexuality in the politics of woman suffrage, racial justice, reproductive rights, and gay and trans rights, as well as conservative and right-wing responses. Majors and non-majors alike are welcome.
