WGS 262 Women, Gender, and Work in the Americas

What is work? Who does it and in what capacity? And how does gender influence ideas about and practices of women's and men's labor? In this course we will analyze these questions in specific contexts across the Americas from Argentina to the United States. We will study women's productive and reproductive labor from an intersectional perspective that take into account not only gender but also class, race, ethnicity, sexuality, life stage, and migration status.
