WGSS 560. Race, Gender, and Post-Colonial Discourses. 3 Hours H.

This course examines the ways that colonial structures, institutions, and ideologies impact the world today through the intersections of race and gender. Using postcolonial theory, films, literature, and analysis of current events, students will explore 1) how discourses about race, gender, and postcolonialism are produced, 2) how various gendered racial projects become the fabric of colonial and postcolonial empires, 3) how narratives about native populations obscure the underlying structures of global inequality, 4) how postcolonial gaze operates in identity formation, and 5) how foreign aid and the white savior complex operate as forms of neo-colonialism. (Same as AAAS 560.) Prerequisite: Any WGSS or AAAS course, or permission of the instructor. LEC.
