Description

This course will trace the emergence and vicissitudes of feminist theory, struggle, and literature in moments of national crisis--particularly decolonization and globalization. The focus of our work will be conversations and contestations among feminists from nineteenth- and twentieth-century American, South Asian, Middle Eastern, and African contexts. Themes will include the relationships between racialized women and work, anti-colonial nationalism and militant feminism, and sodomy and panic. Your work for the course will culminate in a term paper of publishable quality.
