This course explores concepts of gender and sexuality in the Arab world and among Arab American communities. Throughout the term, we will study these concepts in the context of cultural and familial forms of power, socio-economics, race relations, and engagements with colonialism, militarism and war. We will also explore the ways that Arab and Arab American feminists respond to various forms of power and oppression. We will study Arab and Arab American feminist critiques of patriarchy, global politics, racism, and Eurocentric feminisms. We will also address the relationship between Arab American feminists and U.S. women of color feminisms. This course is interdisciplinary and draws upon social science and humanities materials. Course materials include scholarly texts and films and artistic expressions.
