WGS 3340 - Transnational Feminisms

What does feminism look like when it crosses national borders? What is the difference between feminism as conceived in “the West” and gender justice movements in various parts of the world? How do colonial histories, inequalities, complex identities and culturally diverse ways of “doing” gender shape gender politics? This course also examines the gendered character of diasporas, contact zones, and institutions such as NGOs that traverse borders.
