An introduction to anthropological perspectives of sex and gender, including attributes associated with "maleness" or "femaleness" and norms and ideals regarding appropriate roles, behaviors and sexualities. The course presents cross-cultural models enabling us to confront how we come to consider and express ourselves as "men," "women," or something else, the social forces constraining us to act as gendered persons, and consequences for not conforming to those norms.
