What did you learn from the films in relations to course discussions, the eText, and other resources we’ve covered?

On Thursday, March 21, you will watch the folliowing two films in class with the sub:

Transforming Gender (44 minutes)  https://vimeo.com/124200023

Transforming History (12 minutes)  http://www.nytimes.com/video/us/100000003740068/transforming-history.html

Then for homework, you must answer the following questions in ESSAY FORMAT (350 words minimum):

  • What are the arguments made in each film regarding transgender history and current transgender issues?
  • According to the films, what do transgender people want and need today?
  • How do the films relate to topics we’ve been discussing in class?
  • What did you learn from the films in relations to course discussions, the eText, and other resources we’ve covered?
  • Would you recommend these films for use in other human sexuality classes? Why or why not?
