FGSS 2010 - Introduction to Feminist, Gender, and Sexuality Studies

Fall, spring. 4 credits.

Fall, J. Juffer; spring, M. Chiu.

Feminist, Gender, & Sexuality Studies is an interdisciplinary program focused on understanding the impart of gender and sexuality on the world around us and on the power hierarchies that structure it. In this class we focus mainly on the experiences, historical conditions, and concerns of women as they are shaped by gender, sexuality, and race in the present and the past. We will read a variety of texts, including personal narratives, historical documents, and cultural criticism, across a range of disciplines, and in doing so will consider how larger structural systems of both privilege and oppression affect individuals’ identities, experiences, and options, and simultaneously we will examine forms of agency and action taken by women in the face of these larger systems.
