Section Information for Fall 2023
This interdisciplinary course will draw upon scholarship across the humanities and social sciences to investigate feminist perspectives on gender and race, and to complicate the latter, in transnational contexts. Topics may include, among others, any of the following: transnational feminist crossings; feminist vocabularies across cultures; ‘home’ and the politics of location; diasporas, borderlands and border identities; beauty and colorism across the globe; narrating queer and trans- sexualities; maternal and surrogate bodies; masculinities; gender, race and disability. Students will be introduced to readings that offer culturally nuanced, intersectional perspectives on the complex ways in which gendered and racialized bodies may be constructed across the globe. Through an appraisal of feminist critical responses to these constructions, students will be able to envision the different ways in which feminist theorizing may be refigured across cultures, and within transnational frameworks. Readings and cross-disciplinary emphases may vary.
