In this course, we will closely examine the ways in which sociologists and other scholars have conceptualized and studied sex, gender and sexuality in society, while we try to bring conceptual clarity to these terms and to understand the complex relationships among them. Through this broad survey of the field, our goal is to gain a critical perspective on the ways in which gender and sexuality affect many spheres of social life (at work, in the family, in politics, in the production of scientific knowledge, etc.), drawing real or perceived boundaries of difference that shape the opportunities available to, and the day-to-day experiences and interactions of social subjects. As we will see, we cannot study gender and sexuality without thinking about power.
