Central focus from a white feminist perspective and on white feminism. The subject marks harshly also. The subject is interesting, however too strong of a focus on white feminism

This subject was way more enjoyable than I thought it would be. While it did have a bit of a slump mid semester, the really interesting weeks on sexuality, gendered labour, femininities/masculinities and intersex made up for it. The assessments are great and not as much work as CRIM10001. You get to do a very self-directed short research essay, a super easy 1,000 word exam and journal entries throughout the semester. This subject completely changed my perspective on all things gender, sex and culture and made me more aware of how my everyday interactions reflected this - I thought I was woke before living in Melbourne, having lots of LGBTQIA+ friends and a brother who is doing his PhD on gender studies, but damn was I wrong.

GEND10001 is actually called Sex, Gender & Culture: An Introduction so that's what I will be discussing here. The content was fascinating. It was a lot of fun to learn about these topics in a classroom setting because gender and sexuality was always something I learnt by myself, and mostly online. Other than that, I believe there should have been more mentions of asexuality and the asexual spectrum during the week that focused on sexual orientations.

lecturers and tutors are nice and engaging. this is the subject that cover wide range of gender issue rather than depth (but I enjoy listening to tutorial discussion where other classmates have debate over some issues). I wish the guideline for the reflection (there is assessment that required you do reflection on regular basis) can be more specific, I didn't consult with tutor at that time and I thought my content was on the right track, but it turns out that I didn't score well in reflection, so perhaps check with tutor to see what style of reflection is expected.

Interesting but gender subjects are difficult (in my opinion). Tutor was up herself and didn't allow for much room to ask questions. I would recommend if the topics interest you, otherwise may not enjoy.

Every reading is interesting. Tutors very helpful.

The subject itself isn't too bad; it really just depends on your tutor.

very straight forward subject, found it very interesting. Tutorials are really fun because the discussions often relate to real life issues. Essays are very straight forward, not hard to pass at all as long as you produce a good essay with in depth points and good research!

Interesting content, however in my opinion it only touched very briefly on topics and there wasn't much, if any, emphasis on in depth analysis or prominent academic perspectives. The lecture itself was at quite an inconvenient time so hopefully they will fix that for future years. It really is an 'introduction' subject. It's an okay subject to take.

Really interesting subject, the lecturers and tutors were really engaging and so kind and bubbly! Always put you in a good mood. I wasn't very sure whether I liked the assessments though. I feel like they could have been executed better.
