Gender

For Hartwick Introduction to Anthropology 2018 we read Lavenda and Schultz chapter 13, “What can anthropology tell us about sex, gender, and sexuality?” (393-419).

One of my most-read posts on this blog is “Gender is a Social Construction: Anthropology on Sex, Gender and Sexuality” which I wrote in 2012.

In 2020, I used a new textbook to revisit and reorganize the material on Family and Marriage as well as Kinship and Gender.
