GLOB 1300 - Gender Perspectives from the Global South

Goals: To introduce students to basic concepts shared between global studies and the study of gender; to examine power and agency, and the ways in which gender politics changes its form in varying situations; and to study global South contexts, subjectivities, and struggles utilizing these analytic tools.

Content: Students will be introduced to feminist perspectives that represent current trends in the discipline, especially as they pertain to global South/Third World contexts; study how globalization, as an ongoing process of social and economic change, impacts gendered practices, ideologies and forms of politics; develop analytic skills through dialoguing about films, memoir, ethnography, essays and articles focused on gender issues in the global South.
