WGSS 2001 - Theories and Methods: Feminisms - Writing Intensive

Hours: 4
This course will familiarize you with key contemporary debates in feminist theory and practice, as well as the historical formation of these debates. Students will explore feminist frameworks for understanding and complicating subjects as various as female pleasure, intimacy and power, the “normal‟ body, reproductive justice, female literacy and education, women’s work inside and outside the home, and structural forms of violence against women. The course will also examine critical issues that inform feminist theory and practice: the gendered production of knowledge, the complex challenges of intersectionality, the transnational feminist project, and the role of feminist action in the academy and larger world.
Prerequisites: WGSS 1100 (or co-registration with permission).
