WGSS 1 Intersections

How have identity and difference formed our experiences and understandings of ourselves, the world we inhabit, and the world we envision? Students will investigate the categories sex, gender, sexuality, race, class, citizenship, and ability, how they are socially and historically constructed and in relation to one another. Students will be introduced to foundational concepts and theories to the study of women, gender, and sexuality, including canonical texts of Black and women of color feminisms, queer studies, transgender studies, disability studies, and transnational feminism. Students will explore contemporary issues in feminism, including reproductive justice, disability justice, carceral feminism, sexual violence, and transformative justice in the context of neoliberalism and empire in U.S. and global contexts. This introductory course is designed for prospective WGSS majors/minors but open to all.

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.
