Overview

Navigating through the complexities of Gender & Sexuality is a necessity in our world, now more than ever. Engage with globally renowned scholars from top Canadian universities to learn concepts and practices that advance respect and human rights. This course will teach you to better understand and apply knowledge about gender and sexuality — a critical first step in addressing social, economic and cultural inequalities.

This intersectional approach to Gender & Sexuality Studies will cover key topics in the fields of literature, language, geography, history, political science, sociology, anthropology, cinema and media studies, law and medicine. Some questions we will address include:

  • What is gender and sexuality?
  • What does this mean in different contexts?
  • How do we think critically and creatively about identity, communication, and community?
  • How are gender and sexuality organized in media and popular culture?
  • How do people, young and old, negotiate knowledge about gender and sexuality?

This course is for anyone who wants to build their own cultural competence and the capacity of those around them to understand gender and sexuality and the intersections of these core facets of culture and nature, with other differences, like race, age or disability.
