African Diaspora Feminisms (FGSS Gateway)
FGSS 242
Spring 2013 not offered
Crosslisting: AFAM 242

What is feminist theory? This course problematizes the notion of feminism that stands in for all feminisms. We will explore the development of feminisms in the African diaspora. This course does not assume a monolithic definition of feminism in the African diaspora. We will take an interdisciplinary approach with themes that include women's liberation, complicating black feminism, sexual identites, raced black women in the academy, cultural studies, and queering African diaspora feminisms. The sources for this course are wide-ranging and include documentary films and the work of scholars and activists.
