The focus of this course will be on individual development in context from infancy into late childhood. At a general level, we will examine the genetic and biological contributions to individual development, the social contextual contributions, and the interaction between these two general sets of variables. Our discussions will focus on several domains of human development including physical, cognitive, and socioemotional development. In our examination of these topics, we will view child development as a phenomenon that occurs within a cultural context influenced by race, sex, sexual orientation, and social class. This course takes an interdisciplinary approach to familiarize students with history, theory, policy, and research on child development beyond mainstream psychology. Together, students and the instructor will explore how different factors impact child developmental outcomes through selected readings, classroom discussions, activities, and various media (e.g. Images, Ted Talks, YouTube). There is no textbook for this course. Instead, students will read journal articles, chapters from selected books, or online news articles which copies of will be provided. Students are encouraged to bring in, suggest, or post additional images, media, readings, comments, questions, concerns, or other materials to enhance the course.

WST 220 – Introduction to Women's Studies
Conditional Remix & Share Permitted
CC BY-NC-SA
Rating
0.0 stars

The course WST 220: Introduction to Women’s Studies is an examination of the forces that shape women’s lives from the perspective of various disciplines such as psychology, sociology, masculinity theory, and history. It also explores ways in which gender intersects with ethnicity, race, and socio-economic class to form social constructs. We will use theoretical, historical and cross-cultural frameworks to explore cultural representations of women, various aspects of women’s experiences, both with public institutions and personal relationships, as well as ways in which their lives have been shaped by structures of gender inequality. Special attention will be placed on feminism and women as agents of local and global social change.

This interdisciplinary and cross-cultural course will foster students’ understanding of women’s studies as an academic discipline in light of concepts and theories proposed by feminist, gender and women’s studies scholars. We will examine their applicability across cultures within the US and among selected societies in Africa, Asia, Australia, the Caribbean, Europe and Latin America. The course is also designed to empower young women and men and allow them to become agents of positive social change.
