“Introduction to Trans Studies focuses on questioning the gender binary and also the relationship between the foundations of our society and gender.”
Did Bucknell University think people would want to take Intro to Trans Studies?
Five students out of 15 slots. Bucknell supposedly keeps class sizes between 15-35 students. The classes on the lower end are usually seminars for juniors and seniors.
It sounds ssssooooo interesting along with the other not well-received “identity” courses:
“The new Bucknell University course the ‘Introduction to Trans Studies’ explores the gender binary and the relationship between the foundations of our society and gender,” the campus newspaper The Bucknellian reported.
The new class is the first transgender studies course in the university’s history and is a part of the Women’s and Gender Studies Department, it reported.
“Introduction to Trans Studies focuses on questioning the gender binary and also the relationship between the foundations of our society and gender,” the Bucknellian reported.
“In the course description the field is described as, ‘an interdisciplinary field that explores understandings of sex and gender through the discussion of lived trans experiences and theoretical tools to analyze gender, desire, embodiment, and identity.’”
Introduction to Trans Studies isn’t the only social justice course struggling to admit students, according to the campus source. They also claimed multiple humanities courses are struggling to find students.
“Feminist Thought and Action has 14 seats available out of 25; another seminar, Geographies of Identity, has only 2 more students than the Trans course does. Africana Studies has similar problems with enrollments. … One of their Intro to Africana Studies is only half full, two have 5 and 6 students out of 25 seats in each.”
