This website serves as an online platform for my course SOCY 2600 / WGST 3420 "Gender and Society."
The site provides students with free access to the course material. In unit I, we (attempt to) define gender and sex. In unit II, we study landmark feminist struggles in the United States. In unit III, we zoom-in into lived experiences of oppression and resistance.
Did you know that Brooklyn College offers free counseling services for students or that you can borrow a tablet or a laptop from the library? Under the tab "Resources" you will find a list of useful services available on campus for students. You can also check out a series of tips and tutorials about academic writing and download the syllabus for the course.
There are many inspiring events taking place at CUNY this semester. The tab "outside the classroom" will be updated on regular basis to reflect this exciting programming. Consider using this space to make announcements about your own student-led initiatives.
By the end of the Fall semester 2019, the site will publish the public-facing, multimedia projects created by the students enrolled in the course. Come back by then to check their work!
I developed this site with the support of the Brooklyn College Library as part of an initiative to encourage the use of Open Educational Resources (OER) at CUNY. You can read more about this initiative under the tab "OER" on this site.
I hope that you will find this site useful.
