An exploration of the lives of ordinary women and men in relation to their place in the fabric of global history. The course fosters understanding of the world's infinite variety of cultures by examining what particular constructions of gender tell us about those societies and our own. The main strategy focuses on biography as a tool weaving through gender, class, race, and ethnicity in particular historical periods.
