SOC 384 Transnational Feminism (1)

Many feminists try to think, dialogue, and organize transnationally. This raises challenging questions: Is there a global sisterhood of women? Can feminists promote solidarity across divides of class, race, nationality, ethnicity, gender, sexuality, religion, and language? This course asks students to critically examine these questions through the study of black feminisms, critical race theory, anticolonial and postcolonial theories, and other approaches. The course will examine the emergence of transnational feminism as interdisciplinary field of study, introduce students to key concepts such as identity, difference, solidarity, and intersectionality, and explore the dilemmas and opportunities of transnational feminist theory and praxis.
