The intersection of race, class, and gender in the lives of women of color in the United States from historical and contemporary perspectives. Topics include racism, classism, sexism, activism, sexuality, and inter-racial dynamics between women of color groups. Prerequisite: GWSS 200. Offered: jointly with AES 322.
This course will interrogate structural and systemic modes of oppression through feminist, womanist, and queer lenses. Institutions such as the family, education, the legal system, and the military will be some of our objects of inquiry.
Student learning goals
General method of instruction
This course will be part lecture, part discussion. Students should come to class prepared to share ideas about the material provided in texts and media, and to work together to critically analyze systems and modes of interlinking oppressions.
Although it states it above, GWSS 200 is not a prerequisite for this Evening Degree course.
Class assignments and grading
This course will primarily be graded through participation and involvement with course materials, written assignments, and group projects.
