In The Classroom

Gender & Society in the Classroom: Gender scholarship for multiple purposes

booksMany of us enter the academy reading Gender & Society. As the official journal of Sociologists for Women in Society, it is one of the most highly regarded journals in sociology and gender studies. As a top ranked journal on the cutting edge of gender research, we want to make the journal accessible on multiple levels, including pedagogy and the classroom.

Gender & Society produces scholarship that is theoretical and empirical. G&S covers a broad range of methodological approaches and responds to multiple events and social forces shaping the everyday lives of gendered beings.  As a representation of groundbreaking research and applied sociology, Gender & Society is a wonderful addition to pedagogical material, for it provides instructors and students complex examples of sociology in the everyday.

speakerGender & Society publishes research and criticism that considers intersections with gender, race, class, sexuality, age, nationality, ability and location. With the help of scholars in these subfields, we have organized articles by research cluster. We have created tools for navigating our clusters, such as teaching abstracts, which explain how and in what ways the article selected would be beneficial for instruction.  Our hope is that these materials will be useful in preparing syllabi and lecture notes, in developing reading lists, and in orienting research in particular subfields.
