Spring 2014 - Graduate Course Descriptions
Description of Course:
In this course, we will explore how historians of the twentieth century have understood and written about gender and sexuality in American life. We will evaluate how assumptions about manhood, womanhood, and sexual identity have regulated norms of behavior and expression, with a particular focus on how people have manipulated, challenged and transgressed those boundaries. Class readings will include both classic and more recent texts. Key themes will range from the family, the state, and citizenship to identity, sociability, and reproduction.
