Doing/Undoing Gender

By Yuchen Yang

Are you looking for more information about how gender is accomplished through everyday interaction?

Take a look at this new teaching module from the Gender and Society Pedagogy Project on Doing/Undoing Gender! If you want your students to understand how sociologists have come to understand gender and the debate about undoing/redoing gender, this module may be a welcome addition to your class. The teaching module includes relevant academic readings, digital media resources, and two class activities.

This module is intended for use in general undergraduate sociology courses and courses explicitly focusing on the sociology of gender. It utilizes readings from two different articles published in Gender & Society, “Doing Gender” (by Dr. Candace West and Dr. Don H. Zimmerman) and “Alpha, Omega, and the Letters in Between: LGBTQI Conservative Christians Undoing Gender” (by Dr. Dawne Moon, Dr. Theresa W. Tobin, and Dr. J.E. Sumerau).

The author of this teaching module is a member of the Gender & Society Junior Scholar Advisory Board, Yuchen Yang. Yuchen is a Ph.D. candidate in sociology at the University of Chicago, where he has also received a graduate certificate in gender and sexuality studies. His work has been published in Sociological Theory and Sexualities.
