GWST 3713.71646: Motherhood [August 3rd - August 14th]
Online
Dr. Jessica Turcat

This TWO-WEEK INTERCESSION COURSE investigates the way mothering is constructed in 21st century American culture. Together, we will situate patriarchal motherhood within historical and political contexts and examine how mothers—individually and collectively—challenge rigid categorizations used to define mothering in favor of inclusive, feminist maternal practices. Students will have the opportunity to hear from multiple perspectives on mothering and complete a final creative project focused on their personal area of interest.

 

GWST 2123: Introduction to Gender, Women's & Sexuality Studies
Online
Dr. Jessica Turcat

This course employs an interdisciplinary set of tools for analyzing women’s experiences and studies the ways that sex and gender manifest themselves in social, cultural, and political contexts. This course does not only consider differences between women and men, but also explores differences among women. The readings and discussion will be designed to examine ideas about race, class, sexuality and other aspects of identity in addition to gender. Together we will discuss the relationships among these categories, and will analyze when and how such categories operate throughout history.
