GWS 100-140W | Introduction to Gender & Women’s Studies | Dr. Munshi | Spring 2021

GWS 100-140W | Introduction to Gender & Women’s Studies | Dr. Munshi | Spring 2021

This introductory-level, interdisciplinary course explores the basic concepts and perspectives of Gender & Women’s Studies (GWS) from an intersectional angle; that is, examining the ways in which gender intersects with race, ethnicity, nationality, class, sexuality, sexual identity, disability, and other categories. The concepts of gender—the roles, behaviors, activities, and attributes that a society considers appropriate for men and women— privilege and oppression, intersectionality, and feminist praxis will be at the core of this course. After a background in the history and significance of GWS as a field of study, you will learn to critically examine how institutionalized privilege and oppression shape individual lives and intersecting identity categories.

The Gender and Women’s Studies Capstone course will be a culmination and synthesis of students’ work in the GWS program. Over the course of the semester, students will explore a topic in GWS in-depth; they will sharpen their analytical abilities and critical thinking skills while engaging in an independent research and/or experiential learning project. Through course readings and individual and/or group work, students will apply interdisciplinary concepts, theories and methods to real life experiences, resulting in a research paper or project and a presentation to the class. *avatar image credit: Jess X.
