About Me:

Global Feminisms: International Perspectives on Women and Gender

In this course, we will focus on the growing filed of global feminism, which spans disciplines and national boundaries. We will examine the concept of feminist thought, seeing how it is not a monolith but rather a variety of contested theories and practices of different “feminisms.” We will focus on the ways systems of power – including race, gender, class, sexuality, colonialism and imperialism, among others – are interrelated and how women and men combat these systems of power. In particular, we will examine how women use their bodies as art form and site of political protest.
