Each student will write a 10 pagefinal research paper on a topic related to the course. Your paper must have between 8- 12 scholarly references.
Ive uploaded every article we have used/ read in the class this semester. Hopefully you can use a few of them as references for the paper.
Ive attached an example of a paper i did for the same professor and got a B+ for reference.
Below is a brief description of the class and the learning outcomes so you have an idea of what is expected.
What do we mean by transnational feminisms? Where and how does imperialism and feminism intersect? How do gender dynamics shape relations of power in domestic, international and transnational settings? How do transnational frameworks recast our understanding of the forces that shape women’s lives “here” and “elsewhere?” Why are histories of capitalism and colonialism important for understanding contemporary connections among women across national and other borders? In this course we will explore these questions, with a focus on the intersecting forces that produce gendered bodies, practices and discourses. These include nationalism, globalization, neoliberalism, empire, race and sexuality politics. We will analyze how scholars and activists conceptualize key concepts such as cultural relativism, human rights, gender justice, and agency. Finally, we will examine the implications of transnational critiques for feminist political projects and solidarities. Course material will include both empirical and theoretical texts from a range of disciplines.
Expected Learning Outcomes
• Understand the connections and differences between ‘third world’ and ‘first world’ feminisms.
• Understand concepts of cultural relativism and universalism; distinguish these from historicized, contextualized understandings of difference and transnational frameworks of analyses.
• Understand difference between the international women’s movement and transnational feminisms.
• Critique trope of the Third World Woman as Victim.
• Understand the connections between postcolonial theory and transnational
feminisms.
• Familiarity with key debates in the international women’s movements, including at
various UN conferences.
• Question established dichotomies as theory/practice, academic/activist,
individual/collective, and Third World/First World.
