Feminist Geneaologies: Gender, Nation, & Globalization

GWSS 590
  • Quarters: Winter

This course will offer an in depth historically informed theoretical investigation into the gendered and sexual relations that constrain and produced modern nationalism and national culture. The focus will be on 20th century geographies outside the West, such as Africa, South Asia, and Latin America. The comparative optic that the course will use approaches “gender” as category of study that has enabled new forms of comparativism and cross-national actions, from transnational social movements to indigenous social struggles.
