WGSS 20.02 #MeToo: Intersectionality, Hashtag Activism, and Our Lives

The #MeToo movement is a response to gender-based harassment, assault, and violence. It is a form of resistance. This course examines and critiques the #MeToo movement. It covers the movement’s founding in 2006 by civil rights activist Tarana Burke; the benefits and limitations of intersectionality theory and approaches; feminist legal and critical race theories about sexual harassment and gender based violence; and competing analyses of contemporary #MeToo activism, particularly its spotlight on the wealthy and famous. The course includes elements of collaborative syllabus building, campus outreach activities, group project work, research into histories of resistance at Dartmouth (using College archives), and peer review of students’ written work. Throughout the term, we will draw connections among scholarship, current events, and our lives.

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.
