WGSS 240 - Comparative Feminisms: Then and Today


Feminisms today show new ways of being and also carry the legacies of feminisms past.  This course will explore the similarities and differences in feminist concepts and practices in the 20th and 21st centuries, through writings from North and South America, Western Europe, and South Asia.  We will compare and contrast inside and also across generations.  We will address issues such as racial/ethnic difference, political and sexual autonomy, nationalism, violence, and consumerism, through literature, film, music and other performative arts, and internet publishing.  Some writers included are Gwendolyn Bennett, Victoria Ocampo, Grazia Deledda (from past generations) and shani jamila, Sonia Shah, and Adriana Lopez (from recent generations). Every other year. (4 Credits)
