Note: The following course(s) are available to all Women's Studies graduate students working to fulfill the Women's Studies GCP or Graduate Minor (including PhD) requirements.

 

Summer II (2014)

 

The Women's Studies Program will be offering the following graduate class:

  • WS 5340.001 | CRN # 68626 | M-F  6:00 - 6:50
    Special Topics in Women’s Studies: GENERATIONS AND GENDER

    The experience of growing older is often overlooked when studying gender diversity.   It is assumed by many that women experience feelings of isolation and invisibility when reaching later life because of negative stereotypes and changes in the aging body.  But this is only part of the story because later life can be a time of fulfillment, growth and joy. This course will explore the experiences of aging in women and men in 21st century society, including focusing on the social meanings of the aging body, intersections of age, gender, race and class and changing roles and well-being for women and men.
