Gender Studies: Focus on Intersectionality
2023 - 2024
This year-long course explores concepts such as gender, sexuality, race, binary thinking, social constructions, and stereotypes. We will look at various feminist/womanist and LGBTQIA+ movements and how our understanding of gender has evolved over time. This class offers an intersectional approach, considering how gender, sexuality, race, class, culture, and differently abled perspectives overlap and diverge. Course materials may include but are not limited to: literature, essays, music, and documentaries. Classes will be discussion based. This course will be taught by City Kids' founder, Dr. Stacey Cohen.
