WGSS 344. Black Feminist Theory. 3 Hours HL / H.

This course will study the critical discourse produced by black female intellectuals, writers, and activists about their race, gender, sexual, and class identities. Students will explore black women's distinct positionality through an examination of their theory as well as their praxis from the nineteenth century to the contemporary moment. By tracing the evolution of black feminist thought, the class will explore black women's initiation of and engagement with political, social, and artistic conversations in various fields of scholarly inquiry including-but not limited to-literature, history, sociology, political science, and the law. (Same as AAAS 334 and ENGL 334.) Prerequisite: WGSS 101, AAAS 104, or prior completion of one 200-level English course. LEC.
