ANT 370 - Sex/Gender in Ancient World
Sex and Gender in the Ancient World
Prerequisites: LAC student with T1SS or GER student.

What is the difference between sex and gender? How are archaeologists able to determine sex and gender from bones and artifacts? What role did "man the hunter" and "women the gatherer" play in prehistory? And how did these ideas impact our understandings of sex and gender today? This class will provide you with a unique anthropological perspective on how sex and gender is shaped by society and how it impacts our daily lives. We will consider the development of gender theory and feminist anthropology, a historical trajectory starting with critiques concerning the invisibility of women in the past, to examining how sex and gender are socially constructed. We will also examine archaeological case studies about women, and finally consider gender as a relationship between men, women, and children. We will examine personhood and the body as it relates to gendered experiences of daily life. The readings in the course and organized topically for the first 11 weeks followed by 4 weeks of regional case studies from the Ancient World.
