Feminism After 1968: France, the United States, and in Between
HIST 288
Spring 2012 not offered
Crosslisting: FGSS 288, COL 289

Feminisms are usually taught in discrete national contexts when, in fact, the intellectual trajectory of feminism has been international. This course aims to demonstrate the mutual influence and different perspectives generated among Anglophone and Francophone feminist intellectuals and activists after the events of 1968. We will focus on some of feminism's central questions--sexuality, violence, race, and postcoloniality--with an eye to intersectional, as well as divergent, articulations within each tradition.

Essential Capabilities: Intercultural Literacy
The course is internally comparative, and addresses the international convergence of feminist thought and activism around specific issues of global importance.
