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. For that post I used the 3rd edition of the Lavenda & Schultz textbook.
