COURSE DESCRIPTION: This class examines women and gender in relation to race, ethnicity, class, sexuality and other power relations in a global context. The course focuses primarily on non-U.S. settings, identifying common processes and problems that inform global feminism as well as examining the politics of difference. Although the main focus of the class is on women, we will be addressing gender broadly to include questions about the influence of both local and global forms of masculinity and particular problems faced by men. We will also explore ways that women and men organize to overcome the crises and conflicts identified in this course.
