GWS 295-01 - Special Topic: Gender, Race, & Science

4 credits (Fall)
Gender dynamics are woven in and through all the institutions that shape our lives. Our goal in this interdisciplinary course is to examine the historical, sociological, economic, and political processes that shape the ways that gender, race class, disability, sexuality and nation intersect with science, medicine and technology. We will consider the complex relationships between construction of nature, language, race, and the body to highlight how culture, politics, and economics influence the theory and practice of science, medicine, and technology in Western societies.

Prerequisite: ANT 104 , BIO 150 , GWS 111  or SOC 111 .
