GSFS 304 - Transnational Feminisms

Semester Offered: Second Semester
Full Course
Credits: 4 credits
Attribute: 4HU, CD

This course examines the possibility of transnational feminist resistance to global and local matrices of oppression and domination, in the context of debates about solidarity and difference. Drawing from the works of feminist, queer, post-colonial, and critical race theorists and activists, we interrogate the gendered politics of borders, national membership, state-sponsored violence, colonialism, imperialism, and neoliberalism. We will also critically analyze how each of these elements interacts with often-divergent forms of feminist politics. Each course module will incorporate an ongoing examination of the ways in which gender, power, and politics come to bear on the production of knowledge.
