SOC 328 Meat Markets, Gender and Violence in the Lives of Humans and Others
4 hours; 4 credits
A sociological study of gender and violence in the lives of humans and other animals. Using a sociological lens, this course explores violence in both the meat industry and intimate human lives. We also look at cultural notions about which groups are violent, and social realities of where violence actually happens in our relationships, homes and workplaces. Throughout the term, we focus on differences and similarities in experiences of violence across lines of class, race, sexuality and species.
