- REL 105: Sex, Gender, and Religion

Info tab content
Gender and sexuality as fundamental aspects of human experience play important roles in all major religious systems, whether explicit and positive or suppressed and denigrated. In this course we will explore how the varied understandings of gender and sexuality in different cultures and at different times have influenced religious identity, practice and belief, and how, in turn, religions have affected understandings of gender and sexuality. We will also consider how this interaction between gender and sexuality and religion has affected the status of men and women in their various roles and orientations. This course, in conjunction with BIO 119 Concepts of Biology: Genes, Genomes, Society, satisfies the IL requirement.
