Lecture 2 from the “Gender and Sexuality Studies” Course
Socialization is a fundamental process in human development in which individuals acquire skills and knowledge for living in a given community and in society as a whole. The formation of the norms of masculinity and femininity based on the sex of individuals occupies a central place in the process of socialization. In the second lecture of the course, the main approaches and theories that explain the conscious and unconscious formation of male and female gender roles in different historical and cultural contexts will be examined. In this lecture, you will learn about: (1) the difference between biological and sociocultural approaches that explain gender socialization; (2) the factors influencing gender socialization (family, media, education) and (3) sociological approaches to the study of gender socialization.
