  • The portrayal of women and men in arts, literature, and media

  • Sociocultural and biological influences on gender development

  • How gender influences thoughts and behavior

  • How gender intersects with other forms of diversity, such as race, class, & culture

  • The nature of sexuality

  • Feminist theory and scholarship
