This module provides a cross-cultural perspective on sex and gender, and explores both anthropological and local understandings of personhood, masculinity, femininity and the sexed body. The module links gender relations to wider economic and political processes, and to the exercise of power and of resistance. As well as looking at non-Western societies, the module examines the West, and questions the extent to which Western understandings to do with biology, sex, gender and the body can be used as analytical tools in cross-cultural comparison.
Pre-requisite(s): Before taking this module you must pass SA2001 and pass SA2002
