HUM 170-001—Introduction to Women’s & Gender Studies

Syllabus

 

 

Course Description:

This introductory course examines constructions of masculinity and femininity as well as how gender is influenced by race, class, culture, and sexuality through interdisciplinary study of art, music, literature, history, architecture, and philosophy.  Students will be exposed to the fundamental arguments, theories and histories of women’s and gender studies through an engagement of images, texts, and film. 

 

 

Required Materials:

For the course you will need:

Women’s Realities, Women’s Choices: An Introduction to Women’s Studies, Hunter College Women’s Studies Collective, 3rd edition (New York: Oxford University Press, 2005).

 

100 Essential Modern Poems by Women, Joseph Parisi and Kathleen Welton, (Chicago: Ivan R. Dee, 2008).

 

The texts are available in Triton’s bookstore, but you can also purchase them online. 

***Please note, copies of the texts will be on reserve at the Circulation Desk of Triton's Library (second floor of the A building).  

Because of the availability of the texts in the library, temporary or long term inability to purchase the texts will not excuse any student from meeting course deadlines.

**This course will be enhanced by the use of a Blackboard shell.  To get to it, navigate to “Blackboard” through the “Quick Links” on Triton’s home page (www.triton.edu ), or, go to: https://tritonbb.blackboard.com/  Once there, follow the instructions to log on.  Click on our course and inside you will find: the syllabus, a course calendar, all assignments, a number of articles, study sheets, handouts, and “Tools” which includes access to your grades, and ways to message me. 

Articles can be found (within Blackboard) on the “Assignments” page and the “Articles and Study Sheets” page.  I recommend that you print out the articles.  I have oriented the articles sideways to limit the number of pages you will have to print (not to give you a sore neck).

 

 

Baseline expectations:

            Regular, punctual, respectful attendance is required.  Students are expected to be thoughtful and engaged.  Attendance will be taken at the beginning of each class.  To be marked present students must arrive on time and stay for the entire class.  If a student is repeatedly absent and/or fails to complete a significant amount of coursework (i.e. 20% or more of class time, assignment points, or more than one test), the instructor will withdraw said student from the course.  However, it is ultimately the student’s responsibility to withdraw from the course.  If a student wishes to withdraw from the course he/she must do so by April 18.  If a student does not withdraw but stops coming to class after April 18, he/she risks receiving an “F” for the class.

            Class participation is required.  Students are expected to complete readings and assignments prior to class sessions.  All students, whether they volunteer or not, will be called on, required to answer questions, and participate in discussions. 

            If a student is absent it is the student’s responsibility to obtain missed notes from a classmate and to find out if the instructor has made any changes or announcements.  Under no circumstances will the instructor repeat lectures or discussions outside of class time.  If a student is absent on the day of a test and wishes to make up the test, the student must notify the instructor ahead of time and have a documentable excuse. 

            If a student needs help, he/she is expected to seek it.  Students are encouraged to ask questions and for assistance in class or during the instructor’s office hours.  In addition, all Triton students are eligible for up to three hours a week of free tutoring at the Academic Success Center.

Other rules for the classroom:

Students are not allowed to eat in class.  Feel free to bring drinks, but be sure to clean up after yourself.

Students are not permitted to work on things from other classes or to read other books.

Students are expected to stay awake in class.  Sleeping in class is distracting to the instructor and bad for morale.

Students may not wear headphones of any kind during class.

Students are not permitted to record or video lectures or class discussions.

Students will be expected to turn OFF their cell phones and put them away; that means no cell phones on desktops.  If you keep your cell phone in your purse or pocket you are not to check it during class, or to read or send text messages.  Students who violate these policies will be required to leave class.

 

 

Discipline and Academic Honesty:

All communication with the instructor (messages within Blackboard, Triton emails, assignments, quizzes, exams, telephone conversations, office meetings, etc.) must be respectful in tone and content.  Depending upon the severity, inappropriate communication will result in a warning, suspension, or termination from the course.  In cases of suspension or termination, the instructor will contact the Dean of Students for further disciplinary action.

Cheating will not be tolerated in any form.  Examples of cheating include: copying another’s work, allowing someone else to copy your work, copying text from the internet and pasting it into your assignments.  Upon discovery participating students will be immediately withdrawn from the course (no second chances), depending upon the severity of the offense and the timing of incidents, participating students may receive an F for the class (instead of merely a W), and will be referred to the Dean for further discipline.  For a detailed description of Triton’s Academic Honesty Policy please see the Triton College Catalog.

 

 

Grading:

            A student’s grade is composed of four elements: assignments, a research and analysis paper, tests, and a final exam.

40%     Assignment Average (earned points divided by total possible

points on 24 assignments)

20%     Test Average (average of four tests)

20%     Paper

20%     Final Exam

Grades will be assigned as follows: A (89.5-100), B (79.5-89), C (69.5-79), D (59.5-69), F (below 59.5).

You can keep track of your scores on individual assignments and tests through the “My Grades” link (it is on the “Tools” page on the far upper left of Blackboard).  In addition, once I have graded them, I will post your research paper and final exam scores.  The “Current Grade” will provide you with your current overall grade throughout the semester.  If at some point you fear the “Current Grade” does not accurately reflect your grade, please calculate your grade following the above formula and let me know. 

Note: This course is heavily weighted towards the end because I expect your skills of analysis to improve as the semester progresses.  Even if your performance is not stellar at the outset, there will be time to improve your grade.

 

 

Assignments:

All assignments and any additional readings (i.e. those not included in the required texts) are posted on Blackboard.  Once logged into Blackboard click on the “Assignments” link in the upper left hand corner.  Assignments and additional readings will be posted on the “Assignments” page until their deadlines.  You can also access additional readings through the “Articles & Study Sheets” page.  The link for “Articles & Study Sheets” can also be found on the upper left hand corner.

Students should submit assignments through the appropriate Blackboard “Assignments” portal.  Instructions for submission can be found with every assignment.  To earn credit all submissions must be in Word 2003, Word 2007, or Rich Text Format files (i.e. files that end in .doc .docx or .rtf ) and attached/uploaded through the appropriate Blackboard portal (i.e. the corresponding “Assignment” link) by 10:58am on their due dates.  Assignments in other formats will not be accepted.

While I encourage all students to submit through Blackboard, you will be allowed to turn in assignments in person—as long as your work is typed and turned in at the beginning of class.

Late assignments will not be accepted

In addition to what you submit (through Blackboard or in person), students are to have access (either through a hard copy or on a laptop) to the day’s assignment.  Students must have access so that they can refer to assignments during discussions, add corrective information, and use assignments to study for tests. 

When completing assignments be sure to write in your own words, to use complete sentences, and to proofread your work.  If a student’s work is clearly written and the student has answered all questions completely, he/she will receive full credit.  If a student has provided truly excellent work and gone above and beyond the instructor’s expectations he/she will receive an extra point.  If a student turns in partially incomplete or incoherent work he/she will receive partial credit.  If a student fails to turn in an assignment he/she will receive a zero.

While I hope all students will complete all assignments, even if you have not finished the assignment before class, I recommend that you submit whatever you have prior to the deadline.  It is always better to earn some points rather than none.

 

 

Tests:

Students will be required to complete four tests.  Tests will be scored out of 100 points.  Approximately half the points will come from essay questions, the other half from a combination of multiple choice, matching, true/false, and short answer questions.  Tests will include extra credit questions which will enable talented students to score over 100%.

The best way to prepare for tests is to complete all readings and assignments on time, to take good class notes, to study notes and written assignments, and to continually deepen your skills of analysis regarding gender, race, class, and sexual orientation. 

Note: Study Sheets for each of the four tests can be found on the “Articles & Study Sheets” page (a link for that page is located in the upper left hand corner of Blackboard).

 

 

Paper:

Using a several step process students will be expected to first select a discipline with which to interact (one of the following: philosophy, fine art, music, literature, or architecture). Next each student will need to select three pieces of music or fine art, philosophical or literary texts, or structures. Then, provide a brief historical context for each of the three selected items. Next, interrogate each item using the categories of gender, race, class, and sexual orientation. Finally, engage in a comparison and contrast of the three selected works highlighting their portrayal of gender (as well as the ways gender intersects with race, class, and sexuality in each work). There is a research component to the paper. Students will be required to provide and cite a minimum of five external sources in their analysis. (See page 5 for further details and instructions.  These instructions can also be found on the “Assignments” page as well as the “Articles and Study Sheets” page.)

The Paper must be submitted in two ways.  First, you must submit it through the appropriate Blackboard portal (on the “Assignments” page) by 10:58am on April 21.  Second, a hard copy of the paper must be handed in at the beginning of class on April 21.

 

 

Final Exam:

The final exam will resemble tests in the variety of questions and themes.  It will also be scored out of 100 points and will include extra credit questions.

The best way to prepare for the final exam is to review past tests and the material covered after Test 4.

 

HUM 170: Introduction to Women’s & Gender Studies

Gender and the Humanities Paper Instructions

Dr. Brophy

 

Papers are to be at least 6 but no more than 7 pages in length, double-spaced, have 1 inch margins, and use 11 or 12 point Times New Roman font.  Pages must be numbered, preferably in the lower right hand corner.

Note: If you use a separate title page know that it does NOT count towards the 6 page requirement.  Also, the bibliography does NOT count toward the required number of pages.

 

  1. Select a discipline to interact with (one of the following): philosophy, fine art, music, literature, architecture.

  2. Select three pieces of music or fine art, philosophical or literary texts, or structures.

  3. Provide a brief historical context for each of the three selected items.

  4. Interrogate each item using the categories of gender, race, class, and sexual orientation.

  5. Engage in a comparison and contrast of the three works you selected highlighting their portrayal of gender (as well as the ways gender intersects with race, class, and sexuality).

     

    I will expect thoughtful engagement as well as in depth examination of each cultural construction. As this paper is an academic work, you must interact with the work of other scholars. Employ a minimum of five outside sources (i.e. sources that are not your textbook or articles used in this class) to aid you in providing historical context for the items you select as well as your cultural analysis. I recommend that the majority of your sources be scholarly journal articles.

     

    Students will be permitted to use quotations as long as they are two lines or less.  If you are relating words that are not your own they should be in “quotation marks.”  Whenever you are relating words, ideas or evidence that are not your own, you need to cite the source.  Within the 6-7 pages of text please use the following format (Author, page number) or, if no author is available, (Title, page number). 

     

    Be sure to fully cite your sources in a Bibliography (on its own page after your 6-7 pages of text).  Use whatever style you like (MLA, Chicago, Harvard), just be sure to be consistent.  Below find some websites to assist you in formatting your sources.

    MLA Citation Style:  http://www.liu.edu/cwis/cwp/library/workshop/citmla.htm

    Chicago Citation Style:  http://www.chicagomanualofstyle.org/tools_citationguide.html

    Turabian Citation Style  http://www.liu.edu/cwis/cwp/library/workshop/cittur.htm

     

If you have never written a research paper before or are unclear regarding the process please see me for further assistance and/or go to Triton’s Writing Center (it’s located with the Academic Success Center in A-100).

 

This paper must be submitted in two ways.  First, you must submit it through the appropriate Blackboard portal (on the “Assignments” page) by 10:58am on April 21.  Second, a hard copy must be handed in at the beginning of class on April 21.

Course Schedule

 

 

The following is a tentative schedule of assignments and tests.  The instructor reserves the right to reasonably alter this schedule.  If you miss a class meeting, be sure to check with a classmate to see if changes have been made.

NOTE: Assignments are listed on the day they are due; tests are listed on the day they will be given.  Late assignments will not be accepted. 

All assignments and additional readings are posted on Blackboard.

While I encourage all students to submit assignments through the appropriate Blackboard “Assignments” portals, you will be allowed to turn assignments in person—as long as your work is typed and turned in at the beginning of class.  Please note the Research & Analysis Paper must be submitted through Blackboard and a hard copy of the paper is required in class.
