ENG 941

Gender and Sex in Literature and Culture

We are surrounded by representations that both enable and prescribe how we interpret gender and sex. Students explore how popular culture, inter-personal communication, literature, film, and other media construct gender, sexuality, and desire. Students consider concepts such as non-binary and transgender identities, masculinities/femininities, and poly-sexuality through the cultural, social, and political influences that contribute to how we imagine ourselves as gendered beings.
