HS 148 Introduction to Feminisms (Fall/Spring: 3)

Cross Listed with EN125, PS125, SC225
This class will introduce students to terms and concepts that ground feminist theory and gender analysis, a range of issues that intersect with gender in various ways (e.g., nationalism and post colonialism, health, labor, sexuality, race, family), and some classic texts in Women's Studies. It will also combine a brief historical overview of the development of the first, second, and third wave of women's movements, with an examination of their critiques by women of color. Finally, we will follow selected stories in the news that bear on the themes of the course.
