FS 182 - The Social Construction of Humanness

This course will introduce students to the questions: What makes us human? To what extent do variations in characteristics (e.g., sex, gender, dis/ability, stature, body morphology, and race) impact our perceptions of humanness?  To what extent is being human biologically determined, socially constructed, or an emergent property of both?  Have notions of what it means to be human been fixed or have they varied throughout history? This course must be taken along with the lab science course BI 106 The Cellular and Developmental Biology of Being Human.

Prerequisites: First-Year Students Only
