Mindestanforderungen und Beurteilungsmaßstab
explain key concepts and theories in the sociology of gender relations and apply them to examples in the social environment.
describe general historical trends and significant findings in the gender research literature
recognize and analyze gender stratification and begin to consider broader issues of diversity
critically examine and evaluate the impact of gender in their own lives.
This course is focused on reading, critical thinking and writing. Everyone is expected to do all of the reading and to take part in class discussions. And students will lead some of the discussions. In order to help you consolidate your understanding of the readings, and prepare for the discussion, you will hand in a one-page reaction paper on at least one of the assigned readings for each week. This very short reaction piece will raise one of the main sociological questions being addressed by the work in question, briefly state what the author’s argument is (in addressing that question), and comment on that argument (i.e., talk about any weaknesses or flaws in the argument, or otherwise evaluate it, talk about its implications for understanding gender, or discuss an empirical question it
suggests to you). The paragraph will be handed in during class each week.
The main written work will consist of a long (10-page) critical essay on the reading material for a particular week (of your choice). The essay is meant to be a critical review of the central arguments (and evidence, if relevant) presented in a week's readings. It must discuss ALL of the readings for one week. The essay should clearly summarize the main arguments in each of the readings, and then evaluate them critically. (If you wish to do something slightly different from this, please speak to
me before you do so.)
