Sem. in Transgender Issues - 38525 - SOCI 261 - 01
Sociology Advanced Seminar. This seminar is based on a growing field of transgender/transsexual (or “trans”) studies. It starts with the idea that individuals are born into a society whereby gender is socially constructed. In this course we will discuss transgender identity and gender expression by challenging a gender binary. Specific topics we will address will include children and socialization, schooling and education, families, laws and legal challenges, media images and messages, the body, health (both physical and emotional), employment, and specific social institutions including the military and sports. Each member of the class is an equal participant and will participate in the class as co-learners. In this regard, we will be “meeting” individuals and groups that can teach us something about transgender(ism). Taught from a sociological perspective, students will examine social science research studies and other scholarship on relevant topics.
