WGS 4600 - Gender and Identity Politics: Beyond the Third Wave

Are identity politics inherently divisive? Or can unity be built on the basis of difference? Is unity even a feasible or desirable goal? This course explores the debate over identity politics by examining how gender intersects with several forms of collective identity, including racial, national, cultural, and religious identities. Students read and then apply theoretical literature to a set of international cases, both western and non-western.
