New Course Supplement 2017


WGSS 41.05 Gender and Violence: Transnational Feminist Analyses

This course introduces students to the relationship between gender and violence in both local and global formations of power. Together, we will critically examine how everyday people and feminist activists identify, theorize, and challenge systemic modes of gendered violence across transnational feminist perspectives. Our investigations lead us to a myriad of historical and contemporary issues. Such topics include transnational feminist perspectives on domestic violence; militarization and women’s health; media and representation; sexual violence; colonialism; gendered and racial discrimination; trafficking of women; the prison-industrial complex; gendered care labor; immigration and deportation; international relations and religion; feminist coalitions on gendered violence; and media networks and globalization.

The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
