Family is often defined as a cultural universal; that is, it is an institution found in almost all societies, yet the forms it takes, its impact on the individual and society, and its relationships with other social institutions vary. This course takes comparative and transnational approaches to understand the diversity in family patterns and practices and how these are gendered around the world. (1) Lecture: 3 hrs/wk. 1 Unit
