Anthropology. CUNY Panel: Rethinking the Disciplines. Women in the Curriculum Series.
Mencher, Joan P.; Nash, June; Francis-Okongwu, Anne; Susser, Ida.
This collection of four essays examines the ways in which anthropology, as a discipline, reflects ongoing scholarship on gender, race, ethnicity, social class, and sexual orientation. In "The Impact of Gender Studies on Anthropology," Joan P. Mencher reviews the effects of gender studies on physical anthropology, archeology, and developmental anthropology. In "Gender Critique of Social Science Models in Latin America," June Nash argues that feminist models have upset preconceived models based on structural dimensions. In "The Study of Gender, Race, Ethnicity, and Class: Anthropology and Social Change," Anne Francis-Okongwu reviews theoretical shifts that treat gender relations as one of the central sets of social relations for structuring and organizing the functioning of societies. In "Reflections on the Changes in Anthropology, Especially Medical Anthropology, in Relation to the Scholarship on Gender, Race, Ethnicity, Class, and Sexual Orientation," Ida Susser points out that since the 1960s and 1970s feminism and the social movements concerning sexuality and sexual orientations have shaped much rethinking in anthropology. Each essay contains references. (MDM)
