This course is an anthropological examination of sex, gender identity, roles, relations, and sexuality across cultures. Theories and methods of the anthropology of sex and gender along with the historical origins and development of this area of specialization in cultural anthropology are studied. Ethnographic or case studies of the fluidity of sex and gender in small-scale tribal societies around the world inform class material, as will industrialized examples of legal, political, and social issues.
