PHIL/WGST 275.002 – Moral and Philosophical Issues of Gender in Society
Instructor: Alex Campbell. This course meets MTWRF 1:15 – 2:45 p.m. via remote synchronous (RS) instruction.
This course explores the ways that power and domination manifest through our gendered relations across identities. As we explore these topics, students will receive an overview of the concepts of sex, gender, sexism, oppression, intersectionality, privilege, and resistance.
Content Warning: It is in the nature of a course focused on gender that many of the topics discussed be especially difficult for students from a variety of backgrounds. These topics include but are not limited to sexual harassment and assault, intimidation, domestic violence, rape, psychological descriptions of instances of oppression, racial trauma, suicide, female genital mutilation, mass shootings, and police brutality. Moreover, some of the course content is sexually explicit and may make some people uncomfortable. If you have any concerns about any elements of the course, or if there is any way that we can together make things easier to bear, please contact me by email.
