GWS 395-02 - Advanced Special Topic: Gender in Post-WWII East Asia

4 credits (Spring)
Cross-listed as: EAS 395-01 .  This course discusses contemporary East Asian cultures and societies from the perspective of gender. It focuses on women’s and men’s different experiences, role status ideas, and contributions during the post-WWII period. Our goal is to progressively map the key notions of contemporary gender studies while looking back at the sociopolitical transformations faced by China, Japan, and Korea in the past decades.

Prerequisite: GWS 111  or SOC 111  and one 200-level GWS elective course or East Asian Studies Concentrator.
