Students use an interdisciplinary approach grounded in a critical feminist gerontology framework to consider issues of particular concern to women as they travel through the life course. Students will examine the meaning of gender in later life and how gender intersects with other positionalities - ethnicity and class, for example - to shape the life chances and lived experiences of elders. Pass/No Pass grading not available. Cross-listed as GER 435 for undergraduate credit. 4 crs.
