Description
Are you a feminist? Why or why not? In this course, you will learn about the
history and principles of feminism as a social movement, an academic discipline,
and a political theory, and you will have the opportunity to put your own values
into action by creating a community engagement project with a small group of
students. Through reading, research, reflection, writing, and action, we will
discover the ways that feminism can be put to everyday use as well as be a
source of ongoing intellectual challenge. Students can expect to read the
classics of feminist theory, meet feminist scholars on campus, and interact with
community leaders working on gender issues.
The course has several goals: to offer students the opportunity to read classic
and contemporary works of feminist writing; to have students design and execute
a community engagement project; and to improve analytical and critical skills
through writing, discussion, oral presentation and project design.
