New Undergraduate Course Supplement 2023

WGSS 41.01 Ocean Feminisms

This course introduces students to contemporary debates and conversations on Ocean feminisms in the Pacific. It weaves together literature, film, poetry and art from Oceanic feminist organizers and intellectuals in the Pacific to consider contemporary activism and movement building towards decolonization and Native Sovereignty across Oceania. In the class, we will examine the work and visions of Native feminists like Haunani Kay Trask, Teresia Teaiwa, Linda Tuhiwai Smith, and Kathy Jetnil Kijiner who highlight the anti and decolonial potential of Ocean feminisms in informing global movements for climate justice, demilitarization, body sovereignty, abolition, and land-based resurgence. We will also learn and engage with contemporary activists through a series of guest lectures and workshops focusing on transdisciplinary and creative oceanic methodologies.
