Minnesota Transfer Curriculum Goal
  • Goal 05 - Hist/Soc/Behav Sci
    • Employ the methods and data that historians and social and behavioral scientists use to investigate the human condition.
    • Examine social institutions and processes across a range of historical periods and cultures.
    • Use and critique alternative explanatory systems or theories.
    • Develop and communicate alternative explanations or solutions for contemporary social issues.
  • Goal 08 - Global Perspective
    • Describe and analyze political, economic, and cultural elements which influence relations of states and societies in their historical and contemporary dimensions.
    • Demonstrate knowledge of cultural, social, religious and linguistic differences.
    • Analyze specific international problems, illustrating the cultural, economic, and political differences that affect their solution.
    • Understand the role of a world citizen and the responsibility world citizens share for their common global future.

This course critically analyzes global issues related to gender and sexuality from historical, social scientific and interdisciplinary perspectives. We will question commonly accepted notions of gender and sexuality and perceived social roles both historically and beyond the framework of U.S. and western societies. Areas to be explored include culture, economic development, education, government, health and law. Special attention will be given to such issues as human rights and public activism. The class will engage in understanding gender and sexuality within the contexts of shifting local and global power dynamics and as necessarily interconnected with race, ethnicity, class, and (neo) colonialism.
