These weekly discussions will require that you place at least 2 of the assigned materials in conversation with each other and create a dialogue.
The idea of the class is to recognize the contributions of Global Feminist Theories to a generalized interpretation of Feminism. Unlike traditional reading responses that simply summarize the readings, I want to learn how you’re applying the theoretical concepts you are learning about with your own interests and observations of the world. Application of the concepts is stronger than regurgitation, it’s practicing summation and critical thinking skills.
Guiding questions for this week:
Do you think intersectionality is useful today?
What are limitations of an intersectional feminist framework?
Discuss at least one contemporary issue that you see an intersectional lens being applied for analysis OR a contemporary issue you think NEEDS intersectional analysis.
