This course examines, through a transnational feminist lens, the complex relationship(s) between sexual violence and the state under differing historical contexts and in diverse geographical locations. We will interrogate the colonial and the postcolonial, the “first” and the “third” worlds, text and context. Tracing how gender intersects with race, religion, nation, class and sexuality, we will frame sexual violence as simultaneously personal and political as we critically examine the political, cultural, legal, regulatory and discursive role of the state. Though the scope of the course is historically and geographically broad, some of the material focuses on India/South Asia. The course is interdisciplinary, and weaves together a variety of theoretical, analytical and creative (i.e., fiction, film, art) texts.

Course Requirements:

Course requirements: class participation, one presentation, a paper, independent project, and take home final exam.
