WS 320 - Transnational Feminist Theory and Women’s Activism (3 Cr.)

(GEN. ED. #7 and #10)
Crossing the boundaries of nationality, ethnicity, citizenship, sexuality, and genre, this course brings together a plurality of women’s voices of the non-Western world that counter colonial, post-colonial, multinational, and masculine paradigms of “otherness.” The central aims are to examine the extent to which their activism and theoretical thinking grew out of historical conditions, to establish a dialog that forms the wide-ranging spectrum of women’s experiences across the globe, and to assess these social and political writings for national change in the 21st century. Prerequisite: junior standing. Fall semester. François.
