Honors Learning Experiences are not required in the summer; however, a summer Honors Learning Experience can be banked if the bank is "empty" or can fulfill the participation requirement for the following fall semester.
Summer 2017 Honors Section
COM 128: Gender in the Humanities
4 weeks: June 5 - June 30, 2017
Instructor: Dr. Kevin Meyer
Counts for General Education in the Language in the Humanities (LH) category
Although gender roles, norms, and stereotypes play a vital role in our human development and socialization from the time we are born, we do not typically become fully cognizant of the influence and pervasiveness that these constructs have on our lives until we are a bit older. Eventually, we grow to accept, question, or reject these notions; yet, the grasp of traditional and cultural conceptualizations of gender remain difficult for many of us to fully understand, challenge, or escape.
By critically examining multiple perspectives within the humanities, across cultures and time, this class will expose you to a vast body of literature that ought to cause you to think about gender in new ways as well as cultivate your own perspectives through written assignments and research reflective of advanced scholarship in the Honors Program.
