GWS 2525 - Global Women’s Issues (3)

When Offered: Spring
GEN ED: Integrative Learning Experience (Theme: “From Empire to Globalization”)
This course explores the diversity of women’s experiences emerging from postcolonial or “third world” contexts, with particular attention to the challenges that considerations of differences as well as transnational connections pose for feminist thought and practice. Questions of representation, agency, and border crossings are grounded in local histories and the ambiguous implications of a globalization and “development” in out- of-the-way places.
