Aims/Description: This module explores the ways in which gender is constructed, represented and experienced in the various countries of East Asia. It will also look at how gender intersects with other categories of identity, including race, nationality and sexuality. Through the module, students will develop an understanding of key concepts and approaches to gender studies and the way in which these have been applied in the East Asian region. Topics include representations of sex/gender; bodies and biology; relationships, sex and reproduction; notions of family; and gendered work.
