WGS 320 Black Feminisms

This seminar addresses the theoretical contributions of "Black" (Continental, Diasporan, and American African) feminists working from a variety of disciplinary perspectives. Viewing "Black" women as producers of knowledge and as transforming agents, we will outline principles and practices of "Black" Feminisms. We also will examine the interrelationship among life, theory, and praxis, as well as the various ways in which these three are imagined and realized by "Black" feminist writers. [GM1]
