This course will focus on two aspects of social change through the lenses of gender and global feminisms. First we will consider how individuals generally, and feminists in particular, are shaped by changing political and economic conditions, especially during times of upheaval and rapid social transformation. We will, of course, also examine how this is different for individuals who are not raised to adulthood in such times. Second, we will examine how and why some individuals become engaged in creating social change (and why others do not).

For both parts of the course, we will draw on theoretical literature in feminist theory and in social science, and on studies of the impact of social events on individuals and the role of individuals in creating social change. We will also draw upon the Global Feminisms Project, an online archive of oral histories with feminist activists in seven countries (Nicaragua, Poland, China, India, Brazil, Russia, and the U.S.) as a source of material in thinking about both issues.
