In WGS301: Introduction to Women’s & Gender Studies: Transnational Activism & Women’s Human Rights, we will learn to think about our relationships to systems of oppression and privilege in our communities and transnationally by undertaking readings and assignments in four units: we’ll look at how gender, sexuality, and race are constructed; we’ll learn from feminist tools for critically reading media; we’ll find out how feminist theory connects with activism; and we’ll map out how all of this relates to women’s human rights education, critique, and activism. Women’s & Gender Studies is a field committed to imagining revolutionary futures, and your work in this course will prepare you to participate in activism and academic research, including the programming of the CWGS Embrey Women’s Human Rights Initiative.
