Gender and Social Identity Theories

Develop a shared understanding of how gender is shaped by our families, friends, society and the media. Gender dictates how we are named and dressed as youth, but it also has broader implications for economic access, resource allocation, educational socialization and career options later in life. Explore social identity theory as it relates to a person’s concept of self as determined by social groups. We’ll discuss how a person’s identity is shaped by varying social contexts and how we can partake in a more diverse and supportive community. A $15 materials fee is due to the instructor on the first day of class.
