FALL 2019: Sociology 108

SOCIOLOGY 108
Men and Masculinity

SOC 108 introduces students to the field of masculinity by examining the socialization and the general experience of boys and men from a sociological perspective. It explores the social construction of masculinity in sports, family, work, and other social relationships to show how it affects people, institutions, and society. It studies the connections between masculinity, gender, and violence, as well as how masculinity intersects with race and ethnicity, class, occupation, physical ability, and sexuality. The course analyzes hegemonic masculinity and its impact on our lives. Finally, the course evaluates the prospects for social change in gendered roles by examining the structural conditions that produce toxic masculinity. Although its emphasis is on western masculinities, the course also explores transnational and cross-cultural perspectives on these questions.

Lecture 3 hours. Prerequisite: Eligibility for ENGL 120 or ESL 151. Transfer Credit: CSU UC.
