Threshold Concepts in Womena€™s and Gender Studies: Ways of Seeing, Thinking, and Knowing is a textbook designed primarily for introduction to Womena€™s and Gender Studies courses with the intent of providing both a skills- and concept-based foundation in the field. The text is driven by a single key question: qWhat are the ways of thinking, seeing, and knowing that characterize womena€™s and gender studies and are valued by its practitioners?q Rather than taking a topical approach, Threshold Concepts in Womena€™s and Gender Studies develops the key concepts and ways of thinking that students need in order to develop a deep understanding and to approach material like feminist scholars do, across disciplines. This book illustrates four of the most critical concepts in womena€™s and gender studies: the social construction of gender; privilege and oppression; intersectionality; and feminist praxis, and grounds these concepts in multiple illustrations.Privilege: A Reader.
