We will focus on the social and history context of practices pertaining to gender (sex and sexuality) by analyzing key concepts such as class, race, ethnicity, equality, identity, nation, and power. Through readings, discussions, and films, you will become familiar with thinking about gender as a cultural construct and look at the ways in which gender is “performed” cross-culturally and overtime in multiple ways with multiple (and sometimes conflicting) meanings. This class is evolves with the students. Returning students are welcome back as each year brings new aspects of gender study to delve into. Returning students in this class have created a zine and out reach projects to further their study and advocacy of Gender identity and equality. There is a break between each High School class. High School aged DD students are welcome to use the teen/teacher lounge and waiting area to eat, socialize, do home work etc. between classes. This is for high school students only. Students in the lower grade classes need to be registered in our Down Time Program or picked up immediately after their class is completed.
