Introduction to Women, Gender, Sexuality Studies (Rebus)
“This textbook introduces key feminist concepts and analytical frameworks used in the interdisciplinary Women, Gender, Sexualities field. It unpacks the social construction of knowledge and categories of difference, processes and structures of power and inequality, with a focus on gendered labor in the global economy, and the historical development of feminist social movements.”
LGBTQ+ Studies: An Open Textbook
“This textbook is designed to provide an introduction to and an overview of LGBTQ+ Studies for the introductory level college student and the curious public. […] Needless to say, this political struggle for the human rights of gender and sexual minorities continues today. Research and writing on LGBTQ issues remains vitally important. While various advances towards equality have been reached in the U.S—there is federal recognition of marriage equality, for example, and enhanced visibility for transgender issues on many college campuses—there are simultaneously widespread areas of backlash and hostility towards LGBTQ+ people. Hate crimes have increased in the past two years, and state legislators continue to try to pass anti-LGBT laws and ordinances. Similarly, there are advances in terms of global LGBTQ rights—India and Jamaica, two former British colonies, have struck down colonial era laws against homosexual activity — even as activists around the world protest violations of LGBTQ human rights. This textbook is designed to speak directly to a broad range of audiences by engaging these critically important social issues.”
