WGST 20003 Introduction to Women and Gender Studies This course will serve as an interdisciplinary introduction to Women and Gender Studies, focusing on major issues, theories, and selected disciplinary applications, for which the idea of gender will provide the unifying theme. Lectures, discussions, and assignments will encourage students to recover and understand the lived experiences of women by studying concepts of gender difference. Readings will facilitate discussion and understanding of differences in age, class, sexual diversity, race, and ethnicity. CA or CSV
WGST 30193 Queer Theories This course will serve as an introduction to the diverse theories, political movements, histories, identities, and arts that could be called queer. In this class, students will utilize queer theories to better understand and respond to the complex systems of marginalization, violence, and privilege that organize our social worlds today and to better understand our own positionality within those systems.
WGST 30203 Intersectional Activism & Social Justice This interdisciplinary course examines diverse gender justice movements from an intersectional perspective, emphasizing how intersecting social identities (race, gender, sexuality, class, ability, citizenship status, etc.) impact the experience of systemic oppressions and thus should shape the political interventions employed in the name of social justice. The course incorporates empirically grounded and theoretical scholarship from multiple disciplines to consider diverse methods of social action on the local and/or global levels. Students will examine the practical and logistical concerns of doing intersectional activism and develop skills for building consensus across difference.
Prerequisites: Any WGST-prefix or attribute course OR any CRES-prefix or Primary attribute course OR SOWO 10833
WGST 30303 Women of Color Feminism in a US Context An interdisciplinary course exploring the feminist theories, traditions, activisms, discourses, and praxes of women of color in a US context. Using an intersectional approach, the course examines how race, class, gender, sexuality, citizenship status, ability, religion, and other markers of identity create complex systems of marginalization in the lives of women of color in the United States. Students will analyze the contributions US women of color have made to contemporary feminist thought and how these theories have influenced their activism. Prerequisites: Any WGST-prefix or attribute course OR any CRES-prefix or primary attribute course.
WGST 30403 Transnational Gender & Sexuality This interdisciplinary course considers the fundamental place of gender and sexuality in shaping a range of cultural narratives and examines how various movements related to gender and sexuality have been constructed, contextualized, and regulated in different parts of the world. The course analyzes the gendered dimensions of complex phenomenon such as colonialism, globalization, and capitalism and situates liberal Western feminism’s history and contemporary articulation within global systems of power. Students will develop an analytical framework for examining the intersections of social justice, transnational identities, and feminism.
