WGS 350 Intersectional Feminist Activisms

This course examines contemporary forms of feminist activism that center the politics of gender and sexuality within broader US-based social, economic, and political movements. The course will introduce students to a variety of activist approaches, including community organizing, activist philanthropy, art as activism and direct actions. Consistent with the interdisciplinary commitment of WGSS to putting theory into practice, students will organize an activist event to understand the role that collective action plays in social change.
