This presentation is short, but jammed-packed full of important concepts and theories inherent to the critical study of gender and gender issues in our culture. I use this version of the presentation with my AP English Language students before we begin our Gender unit, and they tend to really enjoy it once they start to wrap their minds around these advanced concepts.
Presentation includes information on the following topics:
- terms important to the study of gender (normative behavior, sex vs. gender, patriarchy, etc.)
- Spectrum vs binary
-Jacques Derrida's Structuralist Theory of the Signifier and the Signified
- The "Other"
