Special Seminar: Sex, Gender & Evolution

Semester: 

Fall

Offered: 

2020

Why did so many species evolve to have two sexes? Why is sex dichotomous in our gametes, but continuous in our bodies and behavior? Did we evolve to have a sense of our own gender identity, and if so, why? In this special seminar we will take a deep dive into these questions and more. We will meet weekly for small group discussion. After mastering the foundational material, students will collaboratively decide the direction the course takes, bringing in their outside interests and expertise. Inspired by the Oxford tutorial system, enrollment for this course will be limited to five students.
