GAWS 410 - Critical Intersectional Legal Theory
4 SS, WRi, CD New Course as of 04/10/2006
First Semester. This course explores the intersections of feminist, critical race, postcolonial and queer legal theories. While each of these approaches often prioritizes one social category above others, we will reconfigure them so that they address the intersectionality of identities and locations. We will begin the course with a general overview of these critical legal theories and then read theory against specific case law. Each student will be required to undertake an original research project that analyzes both primary (case law) and secondary (legal theory) sources.
