Learning outcomes: The aim of the course is to provide students with an extended understanding of the role of material culture in shaping gender. Based on knowledge acquired from a variety of cultures, the course takes a critical approach to a distinction between people and things and suggests new ways of relating gender to the material world.
After successful completion of the course, students will be able:
a) to see material culture as a field of production of gender relations and social values rather than simply their reflection.
b) to approach gender through specific examples of material culture derived from fields such as consumption, clothing, technology and other.
