This course introduces and critically examines various understandings of the social categories 'race', 'class' and gender, among others. Instead of assuming these categories to be biological, ahistorical and/or static, we use theories of social constructionism to analyse these categories as relational and contingent ? depending on the historical, political, cultural, economic and national contexts. Finally the class explores ways in which these categories intersect to shape experiences of inequalities in South Africa and outside both historically and in the present.

DP requirements: Completion of all written tests, essays and assignments.

Assessment: Coursework counts 50%; one two-hour examination counts 50% of the final mark.

The University of Cape Town awards credits based on the National Qualifications Framework (NQF) to determine course and contact hour recommendations per course. 1 NQF credit represents roughly 10 notional hours of work which includes study time, assignments and examinations. Notional hours may very per courses depending on the course level and modality therefore, CEA recommends using NQF credits as a basis to determine U.S. equivalencies (1 NQF=.222 semester credits)
