ANSO 393: Black Feminist Thought

Term: Spring Fall

Credits: 4

Degree Requirements: F9 Africana Studies Elective, Gender and Sexuality Studies Elective

 This course explores the micro-level and institutional intersections of race, class, gender, and sexuality from social scientific and humanistic perspectives by placing African American women’s thought at the center of class discourse. It maps the genealogy of African American feminist thought from early American “race women” to contemporary, “third-wave,” hip-hop, and digital black feminists. It will consider various instantiations of black feminist identity and activism and explore black feminist praxis.

Not open to first-year students.

Prerequisites: none.
