Summer Term '01 Time Schedule for Women's Studies


WOMENSTD 240/Amer. Cult. 240. Introduction to Women's Studies.

Section 201.

Instructor(s): Robyn Marcel Hampton, Elizabeth Summerson Carr

Prerequisites & Distribution: (3). (HU). (R&E).

R&E

Credits: (4; 3 in the half-term).

Course Homepage: No Homepage Submitted.

Introduction to Women's Studies draws on feminist ideas and scholarship to develop historical, theoretical, and cross-cultural frameworks for the comparative study of women and gender. Questions to be addressed include:

  • What does it mean to study "women" as a group?
  • When is it useful to focus on commonalities among women, when is it necessary to stress differences?
  • In what ways do gender differences and gendered power relations organize the social world and shape people's experiences and self-perceptions?

The course aims to sharpen students' critical awareness of how gender operates in institutional and cultural contexts and in their own lives, and to give them an opportunity to imagine participating in social change. Because Women's Studies is an interdisciplinary activity within the university, this course is taught by a team of five GSIs and one faculty member, all of whom share lecturing responsibilities.

Topics to be covered include:

  • key concepts and strategies in feminist thought and practice (e.g., "the personal is political," simultaneous oppressions, consciousness-raising);
  • the U.S. women's movement in historical perspective;
  • sexualities;
  • women's bodies (body image, reproductive rights, violence against women);
  • work, welfare, and poverty;
  • women's health;
  • women and popular culture;
  • international feminism.
