To overcome this limitation, you can "open" all the hidden sections to show everything on the page by clicking the § symbol at the top of the page.
The links will appear in the online version of the course syllabus. (As we will read selections from Jackson's book Destined for Equality [Harvard U Press] throughout the course, you might want to buy it or borrow it.) Any student unfamiliar with the study of gender, can (and probably should) pick up the basics from a standard textbook in the area – I recommend Michael Kimmel's Gendered Society (which I use in my basic general undergraduate class on gender, so used copies should be easy to find).For further relevant sources, my reading lists/syllabi for two graduate courses might be valuable.Rather than focusing on discussion of the readings, the analytical tasks involve attempting a causal analysis of some aspect of gender inequality related to the week's issue, building on the materials we read (in brief papers of a couple pages).The approach in this class seeks to develop analytical skills as well as understandings of the relevant literature by stressing doing actual analyses of gender inequality.Through these efforts we will aim both to enhance our understanding of what produces gender inequality and to improve our general ability to do causal social analyses effectively.
In this class, each week's work will be organized around an analytical task, as well as a set of readings.
These are: an analytical task, recommended readings, and related readings.
The materials useful for those who want to dig deeper into a topic.
(Note: this class does not have an exam nor a final paper.) All class meetings are organized as discussions.
Part of our class discussions will be on the common readings and part on students' efforts to explore the analytical tasks each week.
The contents of all these subsections are hidden (so that the beginning appearance of the page is similar to a standard syllabus) until the viewer clicks on a subsection heading, then its contents will appear.
