Seminar Questions (Please answer all):
1. Describe what it means to “do gender”.
2. Look around our virtual classroom, your workplace, or think back to your last family gathering. In what ways are your classmates and instructor, coworkers, manager, and patrons/clients, or relatives doing gender?
3. What social sanctions occur when someone does not do gender according to social norms? In what ways has this changed historically?
Kind Reminder: Please integrate 1 or more sociological concepts from the current and/or previous chapters/modules we have already covered. Making connections among various ideas shows deep learning!
Consider these questions as you compose your write-up (these questions serve as categories for the grading rubric).
