WGST 241 - The Study of Men and Masculinities II
This course continues the focus on the social construction of masculinities begun in WGST 240. It examines various aspects of men in their life span: friendships and intimacy, health and mental health, public and domestic work, fathers and fatherhood, aging and widowhood, and frontier masculinities. The framework of readings and multimedia will investigate popular culture, film, fiction, life story and sociological theory on this topic. Prerequisite: WGST 240.
