Key Issues in Black Feminism (FGSS Gateway)
AFAM 205
Spring 2009
Section: 01  
Crosslisting: FGSS 217

This course surveys the development of black feminism and examines current key issues and debates in the field. Particular attention will be paid to the various contributions of feminists from the black diaspora to this extensive and diverse body of knowledge. Our aim is to engage with works by black feminist and womanist theorists and activists that considers how intersections of race, class, sexuality, religion, and other indices of identity operate in the lives of black women. Other issues to be addressed include the tension in theory/practice, representation/self-making and spirituality/happiness using critical race theory, political economy and other lenses.
