Course Description

This course explores social, political and theological definitions of gender in American culture and society. Students will gain a deeper understanding of how gender exists in and alongside of social and political environments and how its definition impacts institutional and personal life. Drawing on such thinkers as Edith Stein, Dorothy Day, and Teresa of Avila (not exhaustive), the course provides comparative analysis of gender theories while also framing those issues within the Catholic tradition.
