GWSS/ANTH/JSIS 328 – Gender & Sexuality in China
GWSS/ANTH/JSIS A 328, Gender and Sexuality in China, Professor Sasha Welland, MW 2:30-4:20, SLN 21514
This course provides a rich exploration of gender and sexuality as key aspects of China’s process of modernization, from the late Qing dynasty through the building of the Republic, Communist revolution, and post-Mao economic reform. It examines, through historical, anthropological, and cultural studies scholarship, the centrality of these social constructs in terms of family, state, labor, body, and ethnicity. Offered simultaneously at the undergraduate and graduate levels, with differentiated assignments.
