WMS 3550 - Chicana Feminisms

Credits: 3

Prerequisite(s): CHS 1000 or WMS 1001; or permission of instructor

Description: This course will provide students with a general background on Chicana feminist thought. Chicana feminism has carved out a discursive space for Chicanas and other women of color, a space where they can articulate their experiences at the intersection of race, class, gender, and sexuality, among other considerations. In the process, Chicana feminists have critically challenged Chicano nationalist discourse as well as European and North American feminism. The course will address the diversity in thinking and methodology that defines these discourses thus acknowledging the existence of a variety of feminisms that occur within Chicana intellectual thought. The course will also explore the diversity of realms in which this feminist thinking is applied: labor, education, cultural production (literature, art, performance, etc.), sexuality, and spirituality, among others.

Note: Credit will be granted for only one prefix: CHS, HON, or WMS.

Cross Listed Course(s): CHS 3460, HON 3460
