Dr. Montgomery's LB336


In the Spring of 2013, Dr. Georgina Montgomery assigned group digital final projects for the first time in her 336: Gender and Evolution course. Below are links to the websites created by her students. One group examined how science has been used to study human sexuality and created a time line for gay rights activism on campus by exploring the State News Archive and Conrad Archive. Another group examined how animal behavior has been used to justify human nuclear families and parenting models focused on maternal investment. The history of female body image, including discussion of Barbie and the medical models Norm and Norma, is the topic of another site. The final website is a satirical spin on Darwin's research, presenting Darwin's Descent of Man, Origin of Species, and other primary sources as they may be presented if discovered for the first time in 2013 and announced via social media.

In Fall 2013, Dr. Georgina Montgomery again assigned group digital final projects in her 336: Gender and Evolution course. Student groups explored topics like the gender spectrum, ideas of beauty, toys and gender stereotyping, the display of humans in Victorian "freak shows," and a fictional election between Charles Darwin and Michigan teacher and evolutionary thinker, Eliza Burt Gamble.
