Primary Instructor:

In this course, we will focus upon the experiences of American women from the eighteenth to the twenty-first century. We will explore women’s lived experiences, gender roles, and cultural practices. We will look closely at intersections of gender, race, sexuality, and class and their role in shaping self-identity. The changing concepts of equality and difference, as employed by women and men in articulating gender relations, will serve as a theoretical framework for our examination.

Course Requirements:

This course is designed as a collaborative project in which informed and engaged participation is essential. Each student will submit three 2-page response papers with questions for class discussion based on the weekly reading assignments. Your papers, which will serve as a point of departure for our discussions, will focus on the analytical critiques and questions that have been generated in the course of reading the weekly assignments. You will also be expected to submit a 10-page research paper for the seminar.
