Gender and Intersectionality

University of Iceland via edX

Overview

Understanding how gender intersects with various cultural and social concepts is not only essential to understanding gender studies as a scientific discipline, it is also an important part of moving through and experiencing the world as a human being. Understanding gender and intersectionality can help us understand ourselves and the world and culture we live in. This course offers an excellent starting point for anyone coming to gender studies for the first time, or for those already in the field who wish to brush up on the basics through a more visual experience. The course will offer different resources in the form of literature, articles, images, audio, websites, and visual texts about gender in many different contexts. Specifically using examples from popular culture, classical literature, and history, this course will teach you how to analyze religious texts and traditions, class divisions, racial inequality, sexualities, and nationalism through a gendered lens. The course is adapted from a semester length undergraduate level course taught at the University of Iceland.

    I learned so much! This class really helped to open my eyes to intersectionality and gender. It's amazing how often gender and intersectionality topics arise in day to day life. I wish more people took this course or a course like it. I think there would be more understanding among people for our different experiences.
