This course is a required seminar for senior FGSS majors. Set up as a workshop, the goal of this course is to develop an enabling and challenging intellectual environment for majors to intensively work through the theoretical, methodological, and practical concerns connected with their individual projects. Seminar participants will determine the topics to be examined based on their research projects and are expected to critically, yet generously, engage with the projects of their peers. We will begin by addressing feminist methodologies, including questions of praxis, representation, and theory. We will then work through the prospectus in a workshop format. Participants will be expected to lead discussions based on readings related to their own projects. In addition, students will submit parts of their senior research that will be presented in class by their peers.
